In view of the publicity of the Toyota Prius braking problem, it has pinged my interest in hybrid cars.
In today's mypaper, it was mentioned that there are only about 70 3rd generation Prius being sold here in Singapore through Borneo Motors.
Here are some of my questions:
1. Why is the take up rate of the hybrid cars are so slow? It is because it is expensive? I remembered vaguely that the ROI takes very long?
2. Does hybrid car owners need to change the batteries after a few years? How much will the batteries cost?
3. There was once I saw an article stating that there are a few types of hybrid engines. Anyone care to discuss here?
