@ursus911 you may need to do some research – look up what Nickel is used in, the 1% Toyota use, that they have a recycling program for is nothing compared to what Nickel is used in. Yes there needs to be development in batteries and most things we consume from the earth – it’s a start that we have cars that use a quarter than what they used to. You can’t blame Toyota for damage done in the 70′s and the plant concerned has made massive progress in cleaning up their processes.
The big Oil corporations are trying their best to stop free energy ideas from spreading to common ppl.
We need to put an end to this corruption ,start generating ur own electricity now.

I’d rather drink the acid in the battery than drive one of these things….how anybody can call this an “Eco” car is beyond me….if you want an enviromentaly friendly car, Buy somthing that will last a long time…..sustainability is far more important….If you buy somthing that is Very well built it will last for ever, Toyota has clearly shown that they do not build there “NEW” cars well….if they were built like the old Hilux, then fine….but this is just a waste of money and materials.
i drove the 07 prius, fantastic car, gets around 55 mpg overall, i doubt the fusion gets near 40, and honestly we all know that when ford says 40, that really means in the low 30′s. My 01 taurus gets no where near its claimed MPG.
the prius is also much faster due to its 300 lb/ft or torque, compared to the 180 in the taurus V6 gas guzzeler.
