    Sabi nila its a car that pretends to love the earth. Hybrid power and all. But the resources needed to produce one car is astounding also (owing to the use of exotic materials). Usually gumagamit nito sa U.S. ay mga celebrities na gusto gumawa ng 'statement'.

    I won't consider getting one.

    I don't really have much interest in the Prius so I didn't really pay much attention.

    Mostly materials used in the batteries and other lightweight materials used to keep weight down. I think I saw it in Car and Driver or another U.S. mag. Sorry not much help there. I'm not really a fan of green cars that shout 'hey I'm green!'.

    Natumbok mo! They pull up to the red carpet in a Prius for all the world to see. But the rest of the year they're in their blinged-out H2's riding ond Dubs.

    Well we can't please everybody but I wish they would build green cars that would look a bit more sporty and more style as well.

    The Prius is neither sporty nor stylish. It is just a rolling billboard. A Civic Hybrid is better if one really has to be driving a hybrid.

    If I'm in the mood to be environment friendly, I'd drive a new-generation diesel e.g. Golf TDI, Mercedes CDI, etc. Diesel fuel has more energy per volume (more MPG), and is less damaging to the environment to manufacture. Plus the cars don't have to look like spaceships.

    I saw a pre-launch Prius (with private plates) in Makati a month or so back. Reminded me of a Toyota Vios...

    I couldn't agree with you more. A Prius is not a head turner. What about a Ford Escape Hybrid? Is it a Diesel engine also?
