This case centers around Paice, a tiny Florida company that has patented a way to apply force to a car's wheels from the electric motor or the internal combustion engine.
Based on this quote, I would say it is unlikely that this would hold water.

Any car with an internal combustion engine is liable. Any hybrid is liable.

But, wouldn't this apply to all hybrids? Or is the technology Toyota is using directly related to this companies "ideals"?
