Lets be honest here. there are many reasons a person might buy a "green" vehicle. I'm sure a few are actually interested in saving the planet, and a couple more that would love to be independent of foreign oil, a bunch that would just like others to believe they actually have those noble wishes. but when the bull is shoveled off the sidewalk, I'm guessing the real reason that most of us would buy one is to save money in our daily grind so we can blow it every weekend on gas guzzling, ego boosting, tire smoking HOT RODS. $40,000 would buy a lot of fuel for the bucket T, so I opted to pay $1,400 for a used Suzuki Swift that gets an honest 35+ mpg putting around town and back and forth to work. if I drive it another 5 years I'll bet I can sell it for double the price I paid, because by then gas will be $10.00 gal.

YMMV,
Russ
