    regarding horsepower's post that the comparison of the santa fe and the lexus hybrid in australia, well it's true... i've seen more CRDi vehicles running on australian roads than hybrid ones because aussies know that CRDi engines are more economical than hybrid engines. my proof is i've seen more pajeros, stradas, hiaces, hiluxes, rextons and stavics running on CRDi engines in Gold Coast and Sydney than priuses and lexus hybrids

    I spotted a tintless prius na nakikipag-smile-an sa driver ng tintless yaris sa harap ng Holiday Inn Galleria days ago.

    pangit ng itsura ng Prius. kung naging cars movie lang nakita ko, basted yun

    it looks like an old German car na pinapasabog ni MacGyver

    Actually, you see more CRDis because hybrids are still more expensive in these parts.

    Hybrids are more accessible in the US because of tax-breaks given to hybrid buyers. The US market is hard for CRDi cars to penetrate because of very stringent emissions requirements for diesels in California... one which is difficult for the current crop of diesels to meet... especially considering the quality of US diesel stocks.

    Thus, the political climate of the US has thrust hybrids into the limelight, whereas Europe and Asia (Australia included) are pushing for cleaner diesels.

    But if the tax-benefit system in the US is changed to a more realistic one, based on the actual fuel consumption of the vehicle in question compared to other vehicles of the same size... instead of giving ALL hybrids, regardless of actual fuel consumption, tax breaks... and they fix that stupid carpool lane benefit (the biggest benefit for Prius owners is the fact that they can drive in the carpool lane without actually carpooling... which actually wastes gas instead of saving it... ), we might see a shift to more economical cars and diesels lower down on the food chain than hybrids.

    As it is, hybrids are still a niche market in the US, despite the tax breaks, due to the fact that they're still more expensive... which is why the Hollywood crowd has jumped onto the hybrid bandwagon... they're exclusive. ;)
