Just a thought that came across my mind. For people who are favoring the hybrid or planning to buy a hybrid and can wait, why would you settle for such a setup when a true alternative solution is rapidly becoming mainstream, EV? Why not wait around a bit longer and get an extended range EV when rapid charging infrastructure is set up around the country? I understand the MPG and stuff but you are still anchored to the same internal combustion engine? Also not to mention the fact that the engine might not be used at all for some of you for an extended period of time, which might not be good for the engine in regard to old oil and stale ethanol gas. In the past when the only true EV solution was the one from GM, I could see hybrid was the better alternative but not today when Tesla/Volkwagen/Ford etc. are getting into the game big time.
