This week Danny and Russell are on their own. Together they discuss; Mazda licensing HSD technology, Hyundai announces the Sonata hybrid, Nissan Leaf pricing, Microsoft Hohm and Ford Sync technology integrated with vehicles, the ugly 2010 Prius dash display, the VW Touareg hybrid versus the Porsche Cayenne hybrid, the feds announce they’re buying 5,600 hybrids, the sad state of automotive journalism and Toyota bounces back.

To add credibility to the conversation we were joined by Paul Guzyk of 3ProngPower, a Prius plug-in conversion company in Berkeley, California, and Eric Powers from EV Powers and Green Drive Expo.
This week on What Drives Us Russell and Danny dissect the runaway Prius driver James Sikes in an extended discussion on the subject. This week we were joined by panelists Tony Schaefer and Eric Powers.
