Kris from Consumer Car Reviews recently contacted me to share this graphic. I think it's a great visual representation of how hybrid cars can contribute to helping, rather than hurting, our planet if we need to have a car. My family does not (yet?) own a hybrid car. We instead chose the smallest, most fuel efficient cars for our needs, and might soon go down to one car. But this chart will certainly be part of our consideration when we are making our next car decision.
