World's First Hybrid SUV Stretch Limo Los Banos CA

It's not the first hybrid stretch limousine, because a Canadian firm converted a Prius into a 10-seater last year. But it does appear to be the first stretch limo built from the body of a hybrid SUV, which would make it the world's largest hybrid gas-electric vehicle"if it weren't for hybrid buses and locomotives.
