    Are Hybrid mpg and co2 levels fantasy and misleading

    Is it just me ? I'm fed up reading about stella mpg and minuscule co2 emissions on hybrid exec cars, which attract all the relevant benefits of low emission vehicles including full tax allowances for businesses that buy them and low benefit in kind for employees that run them. And yet "real...

    E300 hybrid

    Any experience of this power plant in regards of reliability of components? I read it's a wet clutch instead of a torque converter. Does the engine and motor ever work at the same time. ....ie for better acceleration? Any info much appreciated.
