The vehicle doesnt last 100 thousand miles. It last longer. The battery
may last to 100 thousand miles, but if you were to change it by cost, then
you still have a better cost vehicle...
The 2007 Prius is around 23 thousand msrp...
The 2007 Hummer H2 is around 55 thousand msrp
The H2 gets around 10 to 13 mpg to the gallon depending where you drive
it... (not even adding how)
The Prius gets around anywhere from 35 to 50 depending on where and how it
is being driven...
So let's say the battery goes out at 100 thousand miles... You replace the
battery for 4 thousand dollars...
That's still half the cost. and your'e still getting 4 times the gas
SORRY, SORRY, Sorry, I just get flustered at B.S. articles on the web with
the intent to stir the HICKS up into thinking that a Hummer and a Ford F350
are much greener cars than those "silly little hybrids...."
