This week at TreeHugger: Toyota launches the new Estima hybrid minivan (world's first) in Japan. SUV owners ready to part with their guzzlers in a hurry have found a new/old way of getting the job done, it's called paid arson. Volvo shows the world it can make a car that runs on any one of five fuels. Bank of America decides to shell out some cash and cover the difference for employees who pay the extra bucks for a hybrid. The World Watch Foundation puts out one of the most comprehensive biofuel studies to date. Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid takes the challenge/commission of a London art dealer and designs the hybrid Z car (not a Nissan).
