Another perspective - Prius became a successful car in the US driven by two factors: (a) Increasing gas prices, that went up from $1.49 to around $5 last year, and (b) tax rebate to those buying hybrids. In India, there was never such a thing as cheap gas, and never a government that offered tax benefits to lower emissions. Hence, both pull and push factors are kind of missing. Just my two cents.

See the Reva is still strugling to get some rebate in Indian Market, Bajaj is still selling 2 stroke Auto, Maruthi is Still doing havoc with omni and m800, still the age old truck/tractor/bus is plying on the road with full glory.

After watching reruns of Jeff Dunham shows on DVD, I have often wondered what in blazes the Prius was considering the way ol'Jeff goes on and on about this car. Jeff, along with others in the US stand up scene have the same opinion of the Prius as bikers have about the Bajaj Pulsar. And after seeing this car's pictures, floral prints running down the side and all, i am convinced that Jeff and others are right about this car being totally gay!
Check out the following videos:
Quote: "I used to pick Priuss's out of the grill of my hummer!" CLASSIC!
Quote: "When it goes past it soudns like aaaaaaahmmm gay! and whenit idles it sounds like homomomomomo!"
The pics in this thread are also of a Bleeww Prius! very pweety

well the GWIZ is not doing badly in the UK.
I think the goverment should invest in R/D on alternative fuels. And this should be a Nationwide initiative. Not 4-5 puny metro's.
in the UK the taxes on a car are based on its emissions also.
Cars like prius etc will take full benefit if the same rule is brought in here.
