this i agree.
on the new Chevy Trailblazer it's only got a 1.2 to start with!
particularly for a state fleet vehicle that may only serve to be a company car for a desk employee to drive up to meetings and back a handful of times a week.
at 1/2 a gallon of gas per hour and 2.50 per gallon of fuel.......it would require 8,000 hours (333.33 days) of idling to burn 10k in fuel. In the case of the Pacifica being a plug in, now you're burning electric energy created from fuel anyways or inefficient and costly and toxic renewable energy. And storing it in a big ass battery with toxic materials.
Went to the PA Farm Show Complex for the PA Auto Show today. Was one of those "Motor Trend" shows, kinda like a dealer's association thing. Was disappointed there was no Trailblazer or Encore GX there. Mostly tried out some miniature conveyances. Ecosport, Trax, Spark, Kicks, Fit, Venue, Elantra GT, Renegade, things like that.
