Video Transcript

Well, I think a combination of the war in Iraq, the high price of gasoline, and growing concern of global warming is driving kind of the perfect storm towards interest in fuel economy. I think it's important to understand that you could have always bought a fuel-efficient vehicle in the past, but they tended to be small and underpowered. It's only been with the development of hybrid cars that you could get a fuel-efficient car that had high performance and long range and other features that people find attractive.
