It will take a very long time before you see any savings on fuel because of the high initial cost of the hybrids.
FYI - Replacement batteries usually cost more than the car is worth.
I'm not against them, but the technology is still very new, no matter what brand you are looking at. A better choice would be a fuel efficient gasoline powered car. The cost of used fuel efficient cars has gone up drastically. I use 99-01 Chevy Metros for my company. I was buying these cars back in 03 with 40k miles on them from a wholeseller in CT for $3000. They are now selling for 3-4 thousand with 100k miles on them. And that's "selling
" not being offered at.
As of now, my company pays $3.74 at private pumps. Our annual fuel costs are six digits.
