Hybrids, and to a lesser extent, electric vehicles, have been on the road since 1997. Although just two hybrids were on the market in 2001, there are more than several dozen today, and the market is ramping up quickly, driven by fuel prices and constraints, environmental regulations, and customer demand. The commercial vehicle market is also rapidly embracing hybrid technology. This two-hour web seminar will highlight the passenger, light-duty, and heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles that are currently in production, offered for sale, or planned for near-term production. Asian, European, and...
