you should read up on the production of the prius' battery
You would see that it is extremely toxic to produce, it has caused acid raid and killed forests near the smelting plant in canada...
And eventually travels all the way around the world b4 it is finally completed and installed into vehicles
They are a toxic death on wheels, you may not be putting as much C02 where your driving but over all your screwing up the world worse than if you drove a reg gas vehicle
Not to mention what is needed after the batteries life is over, they are totally un recyclable and have no use after the initial run
Hybrids are not the answer they are now part of the problem and a totally different ecological disaster that we have created...
