During the driving process, a significant opportunity for fuel waste occurs when a car, truck, or SUV is stopped with the motor still running; for example, at a stoplight or an intersection. A hybrid engine reduces incidents of gasoline waste and total chemical atmospheric release because it draws from stored energy to power the motor when the vehicle is idling or traveling at the lowest speeds. The smaller, more fuel-efficient hybrid engines also enable them to reduce greenhouse emissions by using less gasoline overall.
This is a sign that times might change. I don't believe the claim about the price, as mass production should actually lower it. I don't think buyers will pay $3000 - $4000 more for a truck with the system installed. With larger production numbers prices typically go down. Dutchman probably wouldn't want that, but if they can make a profit with the current prices, they will make a killing when Ford and others put their efficiency models into the production ramp up, even if the individual system price goes down by 50%, which it probably has to if the numbers of sales are to be increased significantly. We still have a credit and financial crisis, not just an environmental crises. So here is what the news from Dutchman said:
This test was to apply to motor vehicles weighing six thousand pounds or less. Many SUVs weigh more than this, and are therefore exempt from compulsory safety standards that may be crucial to preventing roof crush injury. In light of SUV roof crush injury risks, consumer advocacy groups have urged the federal government to modify standards so that they include any vehicle weighing ten thousand pounds or less.
