    Does anyone know if this study took into account whether these buyers were replacing their hybrid-vehicle or purchasing a second car? It makes complete sense to me that once a household had a hybrid car in the garage, the next purchase wouldn't also be a hybrid.

  • 2 probs with this article. You provide no estimates or specific average time whatsoever for how long it would take for return on investment. All you say is "lengthy" and "could take years." Years? OK, b/c no one keeps a car for a term of years? As if most of us like to exchange after a period of months? What does years mean? Under a decade? Secondly, and typical of the degenerate individualistic mentality in this country, there is no mention of the aggregate benefits to society, to the environment, and to gas demand and prices, when more consumers dedicate themselves to buying hybrids.
