Does volvo have any plans for a hybrid? They are very environmentally sound cars...so I would think it would be a logical step for them to take.

I agree, and I believe they'll certainly be at the forefront of developing alternative fuel vehicles (Biodiesel, E85, etc.). With gas at $3.36/gal here in Bham for 92 octane, I will be extremely interested in any reasonable option other than supporting Iran's uranium enrichment program... http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif

At least bring over the flex-fuel motors I remember the S40 having in Europe, and the D5. I'm not totally convinced on hybrids personally. I would buy a base Civic with a standard shift and be happy with the simplicity. I got 35 MPG in my Contour auto. Hybrids really don't get that much better in real world, and I won't have to worry about the extra complexity.

Indeed. A D5 is definitely on my want list right now, and as soon as gas hits $5/gal while biodiesel is still $3/gal I'll get one. Performance wise, they are on par with many gas engines anyway. As long as fat Americans keep eating greasy fried fast food, we should have ample amounts of fuel resrves to keep our beloved Volvos on the road and track! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
