Chrysler kills hybrids SUVs before they were sold

Perhaps collectors will snap up the few Durango and Aspen hybrids that were actually made, because it’s clear why no one else was wanted them. First off, the SUV market has collapsed. Second, they only get 19-20 mpg. Third, the price differential is extremely steep compared to Durango and Aspen non-hybrids and way more expensive than comparable hybrids from other manufacturers.

What was Chrysler thinking? Both in deciding to make these hybrids and in killing them so fast? Sounds like they are are the verge of collapse.
