"Trying to sell SUVs to environmentalists may be akin to pitching mink coats to animal-rights activists, but that's the approach Ford is taking with its soon-to-be-released Escape Hybrid SUV. So far, activists who strongly oppose gas-guzzling vehicles are giving a lukewarm reception to the first SUV designed to appeal to the green community.

Hybrid vehicles offer increased fuel efficiency by supplementing the gas engine with a battery-powered electric motor. But Ford's Escape will look just like its popular conventional-engine SUV when it goes on sale at dealerships in September, which could lead to a less-than-polite reception for its drivers on roadways and avenues."

Many people would like to be kind to others so Leftists exploit that with their nonsense about equality. Most people want a clean, green environment so Greenies exploit that by inventing all sorts of far-fetched threats to the environment. But for both, the real motive is to promote themselves as wiser and better than everyone else, truth regardless.
