Ford dealer in Marietta (NW Atlanta) says that the Escape Hybrid will be out in September/August time frame, but only on the far west coast (CA, OR,WA) and in the NE, NY area. They are due here 3/1/05 in Atlanta.
Toyota says their Highlander Hybrid (my personal favorite) will be here around 3-4/05.
Honda says their Accord Hybrid will be out here in September. It will be much like the Accord gas other than you can't put the back seat down due to location of battery back. The Civic and Insight Hybrids are sparingly in stock now.
The Jeep Liberty will have the turbo diesel engine used in the Jetta and Golf VW's in the showrooms here in September.
What does everyone think of diesel instead of hybrid for purchases within the next year?
