I can't argue with that as I agree!

The Prius was the first hybrid to be designed from
the ground up as a hybrid.* Weight, aerodynamic drag, fuel economy, room for* four
people etc, really dictated its design. Most of the other hybrids are existing chassis
designs with a hybrid power plant. (They are too heavy, thus they don't achieve
the mpg that thePrius delivers.) Kinda like a kangaroo. Wierd looking animal but
well designed for its environment. (Sorry Peter)
