Diesel, hybrid sales rocket past overall US market growth rate

Good for diesels and special thanks to VW, Mercedes and BMW for bringing diesels to the US and enlightening the American public as to the benefits of a modern diesel engine. As for hybrids, well, they're silly and hardly worth the premium pricetag, but okay, I accept them as a decent short-term solution. I read an article recently which talks not only about how it takes more CO2 (g/km) to mine, produce, assemble, transport hybrid vehicles, but also how the source of power stations also aren't very efficient depending on the region. This was recently confirmed by Maserati boss. "Citing statistics that suggest average power station efficiency means the average electric car requires 86g of CO2 to be produced to travel a kilometre in Europe, 110g/km in the USA and 191g/km in China" http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/shanghai-auto-show/electric-cars-are-nonsense-shanghai-motor-s...
