Saw this at a hotel in Napa Valley, CA. I first thought it was a joke until an employee walked up and said, "Yep, had to have a Corolla towed last month."
When I pointed out that the Corolla was not only a very fuel efficient vehicle but also required a lower amount of CO2 emissions to put on the road during its building process, the hotel employee said, "That may be true, but it's the hybrid movement that we're supporting, not the fuel economy."
I thought he was joking. I chuckled. He didn't chuckle back. At this point, a little dismayed, I asked, "So what if I were to park an all-electric vehicle here. Technically, it's not a hybrid and falls under the 'All non-hybrid vehicles will be towed' rule."
He thought about it for a moment and said, "Let me go ask the front desk."
"Don't bother," I said before jumping into my V8, 4x4 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
