Electricity and batteries are just not good for the environment and it turns normal people into pricks who think they're saving the world.
I don't care how many MPG it gets, it feels cheap and drives like a hospital bed. In my eyes it is not a good value and should not exist.

Toyota has not built a good car, they've just built a car and used clever marketing to sell it.

I guess you guys would know how a hospital bed drives (mental hospital bed perhaps?), I don't. The Prius I owned got you from Point A to Point B every time, on time, with incredible fuel economy and in total quiet comfort. It's not a boy-racer race-track fantasy/mental m@sturbation machine for the road that's for sure but it does what it does very competently and drives incredibly smoothly and very well.
