    I think you do a good job tackling the pros and cons of hybrids. I think eventually everyone well have to switch to hybrids. One thing I think you should mention is the altruistic motives of owning a hybrid car. Hybrid cars tend to be good for the environment because as is the case with cars using biofuels, they run on the closed carbon cycle. Additionally hybrids reduce our oil dependence. Even thought these may not be benefits for a single individual consumer they certainly are better for our society as a whole. You mention tax breaks that the government provides. I believe the government should provide even greater incentives for purchasing hybrid cars because as it stands regular fuel cars still save money in the short-term.

    Well, I think the 'solution' of hybrids is overrated. The only reason why thy are popular is because of terrible subsidies being issued by governments. Eventually we have no use for cars still using traditional fuels and that includes hybrids. Alternatives are right on our doorstep. Also I don't understand why most hybrids look so lame. Is it that hard to make them look appealing? No matter how many 'concerned' celebrities drive a Prius, no one should be forced to look at one!

    Starting next year the hybrid cars will have an average of 250 or more miles per gallon. The truth is though, Miles per gallon will be going to the way side and we'll be moving to full electric vehicles within the next 10 years would be my guess. This is a great post, however, and I never thought about the cons of electric motors and the dangers they could impose. Thanks for pointing that out and I am absolutely planning on buying a hybrid car for my next vehicle.

    I agree to use Hybrid Cars because they dont pollute like the diesel cars. For that reason, I try to buy some hybrids to replace them, here in my business. Anyway there is a lot of another types of energy, is time to use them.

    Hybrids are a great advance in auto technology, but I think they are still just an interim step to fully electric vehicles. It will take some time to develop long range reliable battery or fuel cell technology, but until then hybrids are a good step forward.
