What is the biggest hurdle for making hybrids more affordable?



  1. 0 Votes

    I think the biggest issue is the fact that many hybrid parts are unique to hybrid cars, and thus cannot be replaced by parts from non-hybrids. For example, a Toyota Prius drivetrain is much different from a car that is powered by a combustion engine. This makes hybrids really expensive to maintain, so less people will buy them, which keeps the price high. If some of the elements of hybrid cars could be combined into other models made by the same companies, it might bring the overall cost of hybrids down quite a bit.
