We were schmoozing some Subaru booth professionals when something shiny caught our eye. Turns out it was the Cadillac Converj on its way to pose with a Ford Fusion Hybrid.


We were told the reason for this very odd coupling was for use as a backdrop for some nightly news program beaming out to households all over from the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. This is definitely a more electrified version of last summers epic Muscle Car Threesome, but we feel comfortable saying this is the first time the GM hybrid concept and a Ford Fusion Hybrid production model have shared a photographic stage. It also seems to be what the phrase "comparing apples to oranges" will mean in the all-hybrid or electric car future our brilliant leaders in Congress envision.
