Hybrid SUV Gets 150 Miles Per Gallon

The world's most fuel efficient car is a hybrid vehicle called the XH-150, for Extreme Hybrid 150 Miles Per Gallon wonder-car.

Does it come from Detroit? Stuttgart? Tokyo? Gothenburg, Sweden? No.

This revolutionary super-hybrid is from AFS Trinity Power Corporation , a company based just outside Seattle, a city better known for making airplanes. These guys are taking the technology learned from developing and testing battery systems for such high-tech groups as NASA, the U.S. Army and Navy, and also for Formula One racing, and adapting it for us.

The XH-150 is on its way to Washington, D.C. for Earth Day, where it will be parked on the Capital Mall in Washington, D.C. April 20. Maybe it will shame some of our Senators and Congressmen into legislating some teeth into getting us more fuel-efficient cars, instead of just blabbering about it.

In January, when it was introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, CNN and others said the XH-150 could be the "car of the future".

Makes you wonder why Detroit, Stuttgart, Tokyo and Gothenburg haven't given us a 150MPH car yet.
