you'd think they would've caught on by now

Here is the list of the top 10 most fuel-efficient cars of 2007. Hybrids all occupy the top 3 spots, with the Prius at the top again, as one would expect, followed by what I call "the wee machines" (the Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, Mini Cooper, and Hyundai Accent/Kia Rio) and Honda and Toyota dominate the list. Ya know what's missing from the list?

One single solitary American car.

Meanwhile, VW is introducing a 70 mpg diesel-electric hybrid. Yowzahs. If Volkswagen wasn't slipping in the reliability ratings these last couple years, I might start saving up. Ya know, Big 3, it wouldn't take that much to get in on this action...
