Beware of hybrid hype

With fuel prices so high these days, consumers (such as my sister) are looking towards hybrids as a solution to their driving problems. Consulting firm ABI Research, however, warns of the hybrid pitfalls in their latest study.

According to them, realistic evaluations and estimations in terms of fuel savings must be made in order to calculate the benefits of hybrid technology.

“The return on investment can vary dramatically depending on factors such as the type of hybrid, cost of fuel, and the typical usage cycle.”

I guess there is no such thing as the ultimate green driving machine!
