I would love to go to a hybrid, but my main problem is that most hybrids are also pseduo-luxury cars. Take the Prius, for example. It's basically a high-end Corolla with a hybrid power system. So I'm not just paying extra for the hybrid feature (which I would gladly pay for), I'm also paying for power windows and locks, luxury seats, a fancy stereo system, and way more info on the dash board than I could possibly want. The combination of the two makes the car unaffordable for me. Even if I had the money, I wouldn't want to pay for all the extras I don't need.
If someone would make a basic, modest-sized car (think the Corolla, Civic, Accent) with a hybrid engine but none of the stupid fancy stuff, I would totally buy it for my next car.

Gas is going up while solar electric power is going down in price, so eventually these poll numbers will shift dramatically.

Our 48 solar roof panels can cover the charge of an electric car and so we're ready to go. Just wish they'd hurry electric cars to market.
