    I am not sure this has been covered in the thread, but it would be so easy for Honda to bring a hybrid wagon Accord. They sell the Accord Wagon in almost every other market in the World except the USA. I wish they would bring it here, hybrid or not. But bring it, set up a hybrid system with the standard, or slightly de-tuned for power re-tuned for mileage, four cylinder with the hybrid system from the V6 Accord bolted on it and and I would be at the dealer the next day willing to pay $32000 for one.

    Prius Wagon

    Hello fellow wagon wanters. Before I discovered this thread, I went ahead and made a web page dedicated to my own yearnings for something between a Prius and a hybrid SUV. HybridCARS.com has put up a thread using the design here:
    http://www.hybridcars.com/concept-hy...ius-wagon.html

    Please also check out the full-size image on my own page:

    Let's hope Toyota, Honda, or even Ford figures out how many people are waiting for a wagon!

    See what we should be able to buy right now!

    I'm still waiting for this Honda hybrid station wagon to be sold in the U.S. I am furious that it is available in other countries but not in North America. See the link below -- not only is this a cool commercial it shows what is possible but unavailable in the U.S..

    Wow. You're right, Ray. This is a FABULOUS commercial!
    And this wagon is beautiful.
    One question - how did you know it is a hybrid? Are there components shown in the commercial that point to it being a hybrid? (Just curious.)

    THANKS for sharing this with us!

    That is a cool commercial. But I agree - how do you know it's a hybrid?

    As for a wagon, if you guys aren't too stuck on hybrids, check this wagon out:

    Don't miss the bottom... the TDI (diesel) version coming in Jan 08. The TDI's fuel economy should easily beat an Accord hybrid's mpg. Emissions will be 50-state as well. Besides, who knows if American or Japanese car makers will even sell a wagon anytime soon. But the Europeans car makers do.

    Another alternative would be something like the Pontiac Vibe/Toyota Matrix. Some people call it a crossover, but I think it's just sportier wagon. I've got a Vibe, and it's a great machine. Typically gets 30+mpg, while not as good as my TDI (~45mpg), it is pretty good for a non-hybrid gasser. Besides, an Accord wagon hybrid probably wouldn't do much better...

    Volvo wagon...

    We have had Subaru Loyale, Subaru Legacy, and Volvo XC70 wagons, and love them. I have been hoping for a Volvo hybrid for several years, but no word at all on any plans. Figured, since Ford owns Volvo, and I am entirely underwhelmed by Ford's hybrid efforts.

    I would think Volvo has wanted to do something like this, since they have always been both safety and environmentally concious about their car designs, but with big brother Ford pulling the strings, I don't hold out much hope of seeing a hybrid Volvo any time soon.

    Call it whatever you want...SUV, crossover, etc. But my Highlander Hybrid functions like a wagon to me.

    hybrid wagon

    Yes! I am interested in a hybrid wagon, and am looking for one. I agree with another post - an Accord hybrid could be a good option (Honda, read our posts!!)

    I Love Station Wagons!

    Hello everyone ... add me to the list. I'd be interested in ANY wagon with great gas mileage. We get stiffed on these practical cars in the U.S. because car makers seem to think that we only want SUVs! I'm driving an Escape because there was no stationwagon that size ... I yearn for something environmentally sound, economical, sporty and practical!! I need room in the back to put stuff in, darnit.

    There are small wagons and 5 doors all over Europe and Asia - I would even settle for a small gas wagon! My first new car was 1972 Toyota Corolla Wagon and I put over 200k on it. Japan has a hybrid Sienna mini van, why don't we? I also have dogs and need more than a sedan but less than an SUV.

    As for those who say crossovers are today's wagons - not for me. I have owned both. I don't like stepping "up" to get into a car. Gets a little tough as you get older - if you are short to begin with.
