The Truth About Hybrids

Business Week provides a surprisingly comprehensive primer on hybrid vehicles, answering ten myths that continue to surround the technology.

Some of the myths addressed include:
  • Hybrids need to be plugged in to recharge their batteries.
  • Hybrids are expensive.
  • Hybrids will solve environmental problems.
  • Hybrids are only purchased to save on gas.
Among other things, the article points out that hybrid vehicles are not a new technology; similar technologies date back to the 1900s. And the article even addresses the oddest myth (at least in Autoblog's opinion), that hybrid vehicles are only purchased by liberals.
