    the ecologically zealous... the ACT government been buying them like theyre the greatest thing ever and i wouldnt exactly call them ecologically zealous with their road plans. i think the prius has a future but that future is not going to really take off until there are some real incentives for people to buy them. i dont care if a car gets a million kays to a litre. im not going to buy it if its butt ugly! i think thats how many other people considering a family car feel.

    It has to get more than 22, that sucks... My Dads Jeep gets 25+(hwy) and its a I6.

    ok according to the toyota website... http://www.toyota-hawaii.com/vehicles/Prius/fuel.html
    it averages 48 mpg or 566 miles per tank, i dunno what that is in kilometres per litre but its roughyl 956 ks to the tank which to me is impressive cause i get 500ks of a 50L tank.

    it looks like crap but

    Well from both manufacturers based on the SAME UK test ...

    Prius 65mpg

    Citroen Xara Picasso 57mpg

    So not really that spectacular

    a SUV hybrid only gets 30 MPG, there are call gas cars like the civic, camry,corolla,Prelude,accord, VW bug, mini cooper,vw golf, vw lupo...etc.
    that get better gas milage and simular ga smilage, if a hybrid can't boost it face it, we have to give up the suvs if we don't wanna be riding mules to work.

    According to the Euro NCAP test - one of the hardest, it gets 5 stars for imapct, 2 on pedestrian and a 4 on the new child safety tests. These are all out of 5. That makes it on a par with the best Volvos

    that is a pretty good score I didnt know that, but i am amazed of it!!! I looked up the crashtests of the SUv's, and i found outt that most of them, like the jeep cherokee get only 3 stars in front impact and only one or zero poinsts for pedestrian safety

    Hopefully Toyota bundle in an anger management course when you make your Prius purchase
