Wh­en Santonio Holmes won the MVP Award for Super Bowl XLIII, he clearly had green driving on his mind. MVP winners are allowed to choose any car from Cadillac's lineup, and Holmes chose the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid.

In 2008, 801 buyers opted for the car that proves going green doesn't mean you have to sacrifice bling. The Escalade Hybrid combines a V-8 engine, seating for up to eight passengers, high-tech interior features and towing ability with a 25 percent improvement in fuel economy compared to the standard Escalade. While the Escalade Hybrid's size prevents it from getting the same fuel economy as smaller hybrids, it allows buyers who need lots of space and utility, and those who want lots of luxury, to make a slightly greener choice.
