Is GM’s Green Tech Better Than Toyota’s?: Very interesting — you wouldn’t expect the likes of BMW and Mercedes Benz to look at GM for licensed technology. Watch them spin this off like they did OnStar.
[…] GM, once a laggard in fuel efficiency technology, is making its nemesis Toyota […] take notice by starting a new and legitimate rivalry for the next generation of hybrid trucks and SUVs, as well as plug-in vehicles. Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW all opted in 2005 to adopt GM’s hybrid technology in a four-company venture, rather than to license Toyota’s hybrid hardware.
I also read that, at the L.A. auto show, GM showed off its hybrid Tahoe and a hybrid Escalade that got 21 m.pg. city. Now you can be big pimpin’ with an eco lean, yo.
