Having a hybrid is like having your cake and eating it too. You have the opportunity to appear to be environmentally conscious while still having a relatively high-performance vehicle. This allure has created strong demand. This has lead Toyota to stop advertising its Lexus RX400h, with orders at 9000. This is not to mention the 12,000 order long list for the Toyota Highlander Hybrid SUV. With this kind of demand, you can be assured that dealers will be charging premiums just to wait in line and premiums over sticker as well. Guess that blows all the calculations that one might try to use to justify the premium that already exists to hybrid ownership.
