Hybrid batteries are not the typical car lead-acid type with a 12month warranty but are instead Nickel metal hydride which have a warranty longer than the car itself.

Prius's use 50% of the petrol that similar sized 4cylinder vehicles use. They also produce only 10% of the emissions. This is only for Prius's, not necessarily all hybrids.

Sorry, but I had to debate that too.
