Lightning Hybrids held a press conference and allowed show attendees to test drive a delivery truck equipped with a hybrid hydraulic drive. It was fun and interesting to drive the vehicle, but a conversation with company officials clarified some points I had pondered about hydraulic hybrids.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul
