    Of course once consider the enviromental impact of the batteries with rare earths etc and new Ferrari has lower carbon footprint.
    Prius is an image statement not a true lower impact.

    Astonishing number. Highly doubt they would get banned though.

    From that article:

    Toyota is still blazing ahead with its hybrids, and plans to add one or two more versions of the Prius, according to Reuters. Toyota also plans to spend $1 million in a marketing blitz in the fourth quarter -- about 30% to 40% more than it would normally spend to promote its cars.

    Gotta love reporters.
