100 mpg: big vehicles that give us big mileage

it seems we may have to rethink the ideal that smaller cars are better for the environment

recently GM has announced that they are working on a electric hybrid Hummer that will get 100 mpg.

but this is not the only 100 mpg automobile that is in the works.

an upstart company Bright Automotive has van (or as they call it fleet vehicle) that can get 100 mpg.

both companies are hoping to have their vehicles out around 2011 or 2012.

Bright automotive is looking get a $450 million loan from the Department of Energy from a program to help car companies to put out fuel efficient cars
