Nope.  The Hybrid Synergy Drive system's ability to manage the
gasoline-sourced energy does not change the fact that the Prius is still
a gasser.




It's not an electric car, no matter how badly people want it to be so.

The electricity delivered to my home comes from coal, the electricity
delivered to my car comes from gas.  Now I suppose you will argue that my
home is a "coaler" huh?  Why don't we nitpick right down to where that gas
comes from?  If we do that, your entire argument falls to pieces.

Your electric company can turn the generators a number of ways, using a
number of sources of energy.  They can buy electricity on the open
market from any number of sources over which they have no control.

Your Prius takes in exactly one source of energy:  gasoline.  Period.  
It is not an electric car.

Of course it isn't an electric car.  It's a hybrid.  Sometimes it runs on
gasoline, sometimes it runs on electricity derived from captured kinetic
energy.  Cripes, Elmo, haven't you been paying attention?

...said kinetic energy having been produced in the first place by...drum
roll, please...gasoline.

Speaking of your not paying attention...

It's frightening that you are allowed to vote.

There you go, ignoring the difference between a hybrid and a "gasser."  The
"gasser" can't capture and reuse kinetic energy.  You are incredibly dense.
