Are Ford's hybrid efforts part of a larger "Greenwashing" effort?
quote- In October, Ford announced "a commitment to increase global hybrid production ten-fold, to approximately 250,000 units by 2010." The company said "more than half of the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury line-up will have hybrid capability." The Mercury Mariner hybrid will be released in fall 2006, and the Ford Escape hybrid SUV has been on the streets for a year. -end

New Hybrids Emphasize HP, Not MPG
Nothing wrong with the Accord Hybrid IMHO. Darn nice ride, I sure would not mind having one. Increased HP and MPG at the same time has to be good.

Lutz said there is now an appreciation at GM for hybrids as a form of corporate advertising to show a company is technologically and environmentally advanced.
That is the hybrid story in a nutshell. It is good for the image. Toyota won that round of looking "green". Hybrids are taking advantage of the FAD mentality of the American people.
