That is interesting. Wonder what it was about the SD that made them team up with Ford as opposed to the other manufacturers.

Just checked Azure Dynamics stock value... it's sitting at $0.22 (twenty-two cents) a share. You drop $220 and you have a thousand shares. This could be a gold mine.

Even if they could come up with a powerful enough electric motor for towing, they don't have the battery technology to support it. The towing capacity would be equivelant to a Ridgeline from all the battery weight.

And about as efficient as a dump-truck, and equally expensive.

Just bought $50 worth of Azure Dynamics. We'll see how it does. $0.24 per share at the end of the day.

You gotta remember bud that the whole hybrid theory is in its infancy but like it or not, it will be the norm in about 20 years. When the first internal combustion engine was developed, the horse was still more efficient as it didn't require anything more than food and water. People were scoffing at thse whole "gasoline" requirement on top of lubrication and moving parts. Now look at how far the egine has developed.

Where did you go to do this? I'm trying to go through USAA but never did that route before. What do you use?

I honestly don't think "hybrid" technology will EVER take off to the point of replacing fossil fuels.

Hydrogen or Fusion power, however, will.
