Hybred with the quickest payback

Green Autoblog:


... the San Francisco Chronicle has compiled a list of seven popular hybrids along with estimates of how long it would take for each car to pay for its higher cost compared to non-hybrid models in gasoline savings. The winner by a long shot is the Ford Fusion Hybrid at a mere 5.6 years. Which car fared worst? The Nissan Altima Hybrid at a whopping 21 years. We have to wonder, 21 years from now, will they still be making batteries for a 2010 Altima Hybrid?

I am not sure if the calculated replacement batteries which can be thousands of dollars. That probably comes before year seven. If you buy one, be prepared to trade it in year six.

I do like the Fusion, but I would probably go with a conventional power train.
