So, I am reading Dwell last weekend and they finally cut down on the 45 pages of luxury SUV ads (still GM seems to fund their entire editorial staff), but I run across a 2 pager for the next in “Luxury Sustainablitity”. Almost 500 Horsepower in a Hybrid. This is disgusting considering that most Diesel vehicles in Europe might have 40 HP tops.

As I learned from Alex T last week almost 30% of the energy consumption of a vehicle is during it’s manufacturing run. This puppy with all its luxury nav and leather crap more like 50%.

I guess the 20 Miles per gallons it uses is a minor selling point vs. all the ecological impact this monster has otherwise.
