Remember the Battery life is 3-5 years and max 60 k km
Whatever Energy saving is claimed will be wiped out when time comes to replace the battery pack.

Hybrid and Electric are the future.

This is true that Hybrid cars give around 20-25 KMPL (depending upon size and power).

Over the period the amount of money saved is nothing when you compare it with the battery cost.

Here (Canada) I have seen battery to last 200 thousand KM’s which I think the 1st owner will never ever drive unless someone is using as Taxi.
