Valid point.  Even still; at 48mpg vs 33mpg and fuel at approx $.10L you'd
get 200,000 miles with the $5,000 price difference.
So after 200,000 miles you'd break even (assuming there were no other
costs).
Sounds great!

*And* you're still stuck with one of the world's ugliest cars :)

Well, it isn't quite that simple. It depends how quickly you get through
your 200,000 miles.

The longer it takes, the more interest you could have earned on the
$5,000 if you hadn't bought a hybrid, and the more extra petrol you
could have bought with the interest.

Beyond a certain point, which I can't be bothered to work out, there is
no break even point, and the non-hybrid wins forever.

Yes; another very good point.
So there's no money-saving, no prestige, no quantifiable "green"
credentials, they're slow, heavy and they look silly and owning one
identifies you as a simpleton who's bad at maths.....
Apart from that they're OK, right?
