You could ask the same question about a lot of things. How come Detroit has never offered a real sports car? How come it doesn't build small pickups or vans? Why did GM drop the electric car? How come nobody ever offered hybrids before Honda & Toyota? There were working experimental models in the 70s: Godfather of the Hybrid
Fantastic article. I never knew about any of this. I thought hybrids only happened on paper in the universities in the 1980's.
