Mechanical Engineers!! Please enlighten us with your wisdom! Eerlier, hybrid cars were said to be the way forward, but now! Where is all that? why are not manufacturers coming up with new models? The only two known hybrids in India have been the Toyota Prius and the Honda Civic Hybrid and both of them are so expensive. Why would anyone buy them? i mean,.. i know that they are more eco-friendly and all that? but why would i spend so much more on them? is their any other cheaper alternative?
