Does anyone know about plans for a hybrid truck? I wish Toyota would make a hybrid Tacoma.

I hear that Chevrolet is looking at a partial Hybrid pick-up. Small engine with electric motor assist on acceleration. The small engine will give you better highway fuel economy. The engine will stop at intersections, etc. to save some fuel.
I still prefer the full Hybrid Escape. I'll run errands on battery power only. That is how you save gas in town.

Chevy has already put out the Silverado (full-size) pickup, but only in limited areas.
The "hybridization" isn't much either...it more designed to boost the power of a (relatively) smaller engine, rather than to save fuel or help the environment.

It occurs to me that Toyota would have some work to do to put THS or HSD in a pickup. Most pickup chassis are designed for longitudinally-mounted RWD drivelines. THS/HSD is clearly designed primarily for FWD transverse mounted installations.
