Assuming that your Prius batteries will last 22 years because that's how
long it'd take you to rack up the same amount of mileage as a Taxi is being
incredibly ignorant. Battery life has nothing to do with mileage, and
everything to do with cycles. What that article actually tells you is that
when subjected to heavy duty use the average lifespan of a Prii battery pack
is around two years, which in my opinion is pretty piss poor (not to mention
the huge variation in the lifespan of the two vehicles quoted). What would
make them look even worse is if you could determine how many of those miles
were actually covered on battery power alone. I expect it would be
significantly less than 25%, and probably closer to 10%.
Toyota claims that they warranty the batteries for ten years and they're yet
to replace a battery pack under warranty for "wear and tear" (according to
you), yet here's two examples of cars with batteries that have failed well
within that timeframe and no mention that Toyota came to the party and
replaced the batteries under warranty.
Clearly, either Toyota's warranty doesn't cover anything other than "knob
use" (for people like you for example), or they're have a very strange idea
as to what constitutes "wear and tear".

Clearly Toyota's claim that they'll last the "life of the vehicle" isn't one
they're prepared to back up :)
