Before you condem us all, look up how much coal it takes to run your electric car. Compared to gasoline, coal is very very dirty.
I agree that most of us have no need of big engined vehicles, but don't think you save the environment until you can recycle your batteries.
Electric power is inefficient and costly to maintain, so until we can do better, gas is still the best fuel to use, though using natural gas would be so much better.
Just my opinion,
Many people in US make fun of this car. But I don't. I think what we have now with our environment is all thank to 4-5-6 liter engines of American muscle cars and trucks!!
We should all think now of how our children will live, what air they will inhale, what water they will drink..
Prius is the future! Remember my words)
