I just bought the hybrid new a little over a month ago and love it. I had an electric car for 2.5 years and it was great but my lifestyle changed and I needed range again. The hybrid van means my daily commute to work burns next to no gas but a 7 hour road trip is still no problem in a comfy ride.
Also, I save almost $7K Canadian over the last 2.5 years on gas and maintenance on that car. Sure a hybrid is going to cost more for maintenance but still very little gas. On top of that, despite a lot of KMs, my depreciation wasn't bad because newer used electrics are in high demand. I'm hoping a hybrid minivan will be in a similar situation when I go to trade in one day because there won't be many of them yet.
And now is a good time in my eyes because if you do keep it for a very long time, battery tech is coming down quickly in price so by the time we need replacement batteries if you still have it, they should be reasonably priced.
