The next generation Cayenne S Hybrid is Porsche’s first production hybrid. The luxury SUV’s electric motor and its V6 combustion engine are connected to each another by a decoupling clutch, which allows the car to be driven either by the electric motor or the combustion engine alone, or by both drive units together. With its combined power output of 380 horsepower, the hybrid has the performance of a V8 with the economy of a V6. The Cayenne S Hybrid can cover short distances on electric power alone, free of emissions and noise up to 60 km/h or almost 40 mph. It is 1.9 inches longer than its predecessor, and has an added 1.6 inches in wheelbase. Both pricing and the SUV’s EPA-rated mpg are still to be determined. The Cayenne S Hybrid goes on sale this fall. (Image source: Porsche)

Though the last few years have taken their toll on the auto industry, automakers remain unbowed. Though they've tightened their belts, shut down plants, and laid off workers, automakers have prepped some of their best and most innovative vehicles for the 2010 New York International Auto Show. Every major automaker that sells cars in the U.S. is exhibiting at the auto show. Here is a selection of vehicles that will be on display in New York and later in your local dealership—and a few that are still in the concept stages.  The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is a midsize sedan that gets 22 mpg city/35 mpg highway. (Image source: Hyundai)

For some, medicine is a career, but for Fred and Milton Ochieng, it is a mission that has allowed them to bring health to their native Kenyan village where medical care was in short supply. Though that lack of medical care may have contributed to their parents’ premature deaths from AIDs, Milton and Fred turned their grief into a determination that others would receive adequate medical care and live. Fred (l.) and Milton (r.) Ochieng are fulfilling their dream of bringing healthcare to their hometown of Lwala, Kenya. Their inspiration stems from witnessing family members, friends, and neighbors suffer needlessly because there were no medical facilities nearby. “When I was a teenager, I’d see cousins or family members who were ill in the middle of the night,” recalls Milton. “Then, because the nearest hospital was over 10 kilometers away from the village, sick people would have to be either carried on a makeshift stretcher, on a mattress, or pushed in a wheelbarrow to the nearest paved road, four or five miles away.” Sometimes people suffered more than they needed to. Other times, the consequences were more dire. “We had people die before they could get to the hospital,” Milton says.
