Japan changes policy document to show support for hybrids

Japan changed a policy document to show its support for hybrids was on par with battery-electric vehicles after a head of Toyota said automakers couldn't back a government that rejected the technology popularized by the Prius, according to notes from a ruling party meeting.

The wording changes, which included adding a reference to so-called electric-powered vehicles, appear to put fossil-fuel burning hybrids on equal footing with zero-emission battery vehicles, even though environmentalists say there is a vast difference.
