Top (Bottom?) Ten Green Car Failures

Jalopnik readers believe hybrid SUVs represent the no. 4 biggest “Green” car failure … and I don’t think they’re wrong.

I’m a big fan of the gearhead guys at Jalopnik. They coined the phrase “robogasm“, introduced the world to everyman rally-hero Bill Caswell, and called me a genius advertising folk a few years back.

Flatter me, in other words, and you have my attention.

As a fan and regular reader, then, it was interesting to see what my fellow Jalopnik readers thought were the biggest “green technology” failures of the last few decades in this past Thursday’s “Answers of the Day” feature.

You can see from the photo above that Cadillac’s Escalade was chosen as the best worst example of the hybrid SUV bunch by Jalopnik’s readers. Can you guess what some of the other 9 most dismal green tech failures might be?
