Too bad they do not show the true cost. To be fair they need to factor in the
cost of charging batteries and the up front cost of the cars. Just another
example of how stats can be used to prove any point as long as you only give the
stats you want people to see.
In hybrid cars, the batteries charge while you're driving. And while the
cost of buying a hybrid is higher, there is a break even point. So don't
be so quick to dismiss the technology, or too quick to point a point of scorn at
the article. I see no twisting of stats in this article.
fish8, you have an interesting point, which is why we thought it was important
to include the "Cost of going green" graph with the article.
Where do these fuel economy numbers come from? Many of these cars certainly
have different numbers according to the EPA.
@phatness they come from a Consumer Reports study.
why do we have to scroll through a slide show?why not a chart with
the various vehicles?
