I am entering my eleventh year on my Toyota Prius V. Batteries still charge to the highest programmed setting and I still average 46 to 59 mpg as I did when it was new.Where is the savings?
1) 4/5k premium for hybrid from traditional van
2) battery deteriorating over time
3) battery cost after 7/10 years @5k
4) total cost at end will be 10k more vs savings of 12k
