I can't believe with all the cars listed, you throw in a Honda CR-Z.  One of these is not like the others.  Seriously.

do you want to pay twice the price of these already overpriced cars ? I think not .

They forgot about the Buick Lacrosse EAssist that has a 4 cylinder engine backed up with an electric one to get 38 mpg on the highway. The price is $37,000 off the Buick web site. It has been around since 2012.

At least half of these cars are $100k plus, and all but one is over $40-$50k.  That just about puts this entire list out of reach for a lot of people. The one cheap one is a redo from the 80s and 90s.  Which ironically wasn't billed a hybrid or anything special but still got 20 more mpg than this one.  I knew lots of people that had CRXs back then and they all got consistently got over 45 mpg, most of them got over 50 mpg.

Nice looking cars, can't imagine the maintenance expense on these battery wonders.

Very interesting that they decided to totally skip over the Lincoln MKZ hybrid. I have one and it beats most of these, and does it all at an affordable price too. It's a great car and gets 35MPG around town and over 40 on the road. Never have to plug it in either!

really, a honda that gets 34 mpg?  wow.  how underwhelming.  all hondas have sporting intentions, you should have included the accord hybrid.  oh wait, the RLX is...nevermind.

Electric cars will never be mass marketable until they can go further than 100miles w/o needing a charge and for a price equivalent to a gas model. The Hybrid is a nice idea, as a go between, but it's still not what the average person wants.


These cars might be fun to look at, but the average car buyer can't afford them.

The BMW 3-Series Hybrid only gets 1 MPG better than a standard 3-Series in real world driving.  Yeah, that will save the planet.

The "day of the EV" will be here WHEN they cost the same as a gas vehicle, without taxing the gas vehicle more than an EV, and without the EV being supplemented by tax money a gas vehicle doesn't get.  Forcing them in doesn't make it the day of the EV.  It makes it a socialist country.  How about range and speed of recharge/refuel?  When those match up, it might be the "day of the EV."  I can gas up my evil gas car in 5 minutes.  How about you volt enthusiasts?  I get the same mileage (roughly) up and down hills, mountains, in winter and summer.  How about that Tesla?  My wife's ($22,000) Mazdaspeed 3 will go 400 miles on a fill up, it can run 150 mph...and takes 5 minutes to fill.  How about your plug in EV?  The "day of the EV is coming."  When the above things are equal.  Not one day sooner.
