Some of you fools thought that the day of reckoning had arrived: Hybrids were on the rise, guzzlers were socially unacceptable, and cars like the Suburban were going out of production. Guess again, greenheads.

The cars should be here in about three years—during which time, planners assume, demand will swell once again.
