  • Toyota Camry CNG Hybrid ?

    I received this on PickensPlan the other day...what are the odds that Toyota will actually produce a cng hybrid? I have always wondered why Honda didn't add hybrid technology to the GX. Without hybrid, the GX is only marginally more fuel thrifty than the Prius...

    USA Today:
    "Toyota decides to give natural-gas cars another chance
    By Chris Woodyard, USA TODAY
    PORTLAND, Ore. —

    "Toyota will announce today that it is taking a new look at an alternative fuel that it had left behind: compressed natural gas.
    And Honda, the only maker now of a CNG-powered car, plans to make twice as many of those environmentally friendly Civics for the U.S. in 2009 as it did last year.

    Toyota says it will display a concept version of a CNG-electric hybrid Camry at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Though it has made no commitment to production, the unveiling is tied to a burst of renewed interest.

      While I agree that Honda should look into the GX being a hybrid (although I suspect it would eliminate the nearly non-existent truck) here in UT it is significantly more fuel thrifty. Thanks to pricing caps on our local gas monopoly we only pay .85/GGE (and it looks like that will be going down a little next month). With regular unleaded at about 3.45 around here, the Prius would have to average about 140 MPG to keep up with my fuel costs.

        What if you could have a CNG Prius? ......
        I've been known to build crazier stuff. I'll have to change my sticker to say non-cng hybrids :0)
