Yoko Ono Will Be Pleased: Bentley May Consider Going Hybrid
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.
