Sounds like a good idea too me. I've thought for quite a while that a diesel electric hybrid would be awesome for delivery trucks and the like.

That's freaking cool. I'm with Mike Hickman; I wouldn't be ashamed to be seen in that! But with our luck, it will have a $45k price tag to go along with it...
