GM Says It Has a Hybrid that Can Beat Toyota

David Welch from Business Week: Every throne has its challengers, or pretenders in some cases, and Toyota's hybrid crown is finally getting a bit of a test. Not only has Ford said its Fusion hybrid will have a better fuel economy rating than the Camry hybrid, but General Motors is making a play to beat Toyota, too.
