Back in August of 2007, we shed the smallest of tears for Yoko Ono after she publicly urged automakers to “make hybrid cars as comfortable as a Bentley”. We felt awful for her — and the millions of happy hybrid-owners who are oblivious to the uncomfortable and spartan interiors of their vehicles.
Thanks to a report on Autobloggreen this morning, Yoko now has reason to hope for the future. Apparently, Bentley may be considering offering a hybrid version of their insanely-priced luxury vehicles. Their 2009 models average about 9 mpg in the city and 14-17 mpg on the highway — so any movement toward a hybrid model would certainly save Yoko some fuel costs — and potentially keep the whining to a minimum.
