I don't get this whole electric / hybrid as being all that good really. It might be just the way my think head works but..... If it's electric it has to have something to store that electric, so batteries.

The heavy metals in batteries has to be mined and that don't happen with some guy and a shovel, it's dirty and not good for the planet.

Then you have to charge these batteries, so where does the electric come from? Powerstation, so burning coal or nuclear and we all know that both of those are really good for the planet. Plutonium or Uranium that also needs mining and it's not cheap especially when you got to despose of the waste.

Lets all be big enough to say "look you thick t*ats if you're going to build a eco car it can't cause more damage to produce than running a conventional petrol car for 100 years"
