Hybrid Chevy Tahoe wins “Green Car of the Year” award
The Green Car Journal has awarded the “Green Car of the Year” prize to … drumroll please … the hybrid Chevy Tahoe. An eight-passenger SUV not yet on sale? Whaaa? “People don’t think green when SUVs are concerned and for generally good reason, since SUVS often get poor fuel economy,” says Green Car publisher Ron Cogan. “Chevrolet’s Tahoe Hybrid changes this dynamic with a fuel efficiency improvement of up to 30 percent.” Be that as it may, the Tahoe Hybrid’s 21 miles per gallon in city driving is a far cry from the fuel economy achieved by smaller, more park-able hybrids.
