Why Does Edmunds Hate Hybrids?
Forget the fact that gasoline is really about a third too cheap in the US compared to the rest of the world -- even in Russia gas is at world prices -- only places like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela come close to the (effectively subsidized) prices in the US. Gas really ought to be closer to $6 here, if we went by a world market price.
But these hybrids also employ some great and innovative technology and more likely than not, are the future of automobiles. You'd expect real tech writers to be more excited about that, the same way they are excited about 0.5 seconds acceleration difference, which most of us will never notice.
Some of the reviews feel like they were typed on a typewriter by a middle-aged, fat guy, nursing a Bud in the backwoods somewhere. Complete with a checkered flannel shirt and a dead deer draped across the hood of the Chevy parked outside.... Am I close? Phew!
