Tipping point alert!

I just saw a headline from WardsAuto, a car industry newspaper:

"Powertrain Forecast: HEVs Fade; Diesels, DIG Take Over"

(HEV = Hybrid Electric Vehicle, such as the Prius and its cronies. DIG = Direct Injection Gasoline, a spiffy new kind of gas engine.)

This is the first time I've seen anyone forecast (even long-term) the death of hybrids... so basically, I'm just wagging my finger and saying "I told you so!"

Hybrids are gonna hit a wall...
