I'm reminded of all the hybrid skeptics that over the years predicted
the death of the Prius:

o CNW Marketing and their "Hummer"
o Sunday Mail reporting all nickel is used just for hybrid batteries
and destroyed Canada
o EU claims that hybrids are not profitable and just a marketing trick
o Diesel advocates, "Green Human" bogus race that at best was a tie
o Consumer Reports, Forbes, e.t.c, "Hybrids don't pay"

Well I noticed we're not seeing so many hybrid skeptics any longer.
They must have all bought Androids and are not predicting the death of
the Apple iPad.

But the fact remains, the price premium for a hybrid doesn't pay off for
a very, very long time--enough time that most people don't have the car
anymore.

I believe that depends on what you might have bought instead of a
hybrid.

That assumes that you would have bought a car of comparable size and
equipment.

If you're comparing a Prius to an Escalade...well, then, you're an idiot.

At the time I bought my Prius (September, 2004), a comparably equipped
Camry was about the same price.
