They hybdrid movement seems like a band aid, or a way of saying "See we are doing something!"
Seriously, 70k miles to cover the extra expanse, and the battery situation is absurd. No one will say how long those batteries last. Figures run between 5 and 8 years, and replacement costs are around 2-5k. That makes the car economically impractical to me, but some may say that they still pollute less. Which is true, untill you start factoring that all those giant batteries that go bad, have to be disposed off too.
Face it guys, we have no good alternative to the internal combustion engine.
