The Chevy Volt will soon be here. Should give the Prius a run for its money both in terms of max efficiency (MPGs) and also price (Around $30k after the big government credit). Finally a decent alternative to the Prius, since everyone knows the Honda Insight is mostly rubbish compared to the Prius (fit and finish, driving dynamics, efficiency, etc.)
Toyota is a huge name in the hybrid car industry mostly due to the fact that the Toyota Prius remains the world's top selling hybrid car. However, Toyota has two other impressive hybrid models. On highways, the Toyota Camry Hybrid gets 34 miles to the gallon and manages to slash the emissions of a regular car by 70%. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid SUV gets 28 miles to the gallon on highways as well as in cities.
I would go with the Prius Hybrid from Toyota. From what my friends have said, it is a great car as well as good gas mileage. If not, all other hybrid cars are great as well.
If you mean an electric-only car, probably the Prius is what you're looking for. Performance Toyota of Lincoln advertises that they carry the Prius, and there are many other Toyota dealers throughout the state that could always order one if they had none in stock. As for hybrid cars, combination gas/electric, there are many options. Old Mill Toyota of Omaha carries the Prius and Camry hybrid, Rusty Eck Omaha Ford offers the Ford Escape Hybrid, an SUV, and if a full-size pickup hybrid is more your taste there is the GMC Sierra hybrid, available at Plaza Pontiac, Buick and GMC, located in Omaha.

Probably because the Prius was the first hybrid produced that was more than a 2 passenger vehicle. Also it was a few years before anyone else made a vehicle to compete with it, so therefore there are many more of them on the road and the Prius is the only hybrid that will have 3-4 year old vehicles around. And 3-4 years is the age when a lot of people trade vehicles in on new ones.
As gasoline prices soar, hybrid cars are growing in popularity among drivers. Their gas mileage surpasses that of conventional cars. Hybrid cars run on two or more sources for power. Many hybrid cars that are available to consumers run on an electricity and gasoline. The Toyota Prius is a consistently high-rated and best-selling hybrid vehicle. Priuses, in fact, are now available in other models besides sedans. However, many car models are now available as hybrids.

I recommend the Prius hybrid because you get the benefit of the good mileage without having to do anything unusual. Sure, there are driving tips to help you get even better mileage, but basically - it's just like any other car. AND, it's very spacious and comfortable.
Reviews for the Toyota Prius can be found on any car site. The manufacturer's site would be one place to check. Other places like an auto trader would be another good place.
Toyota sell the Toyota Sienna in the hybrid model. There are also other vans available that are fuel efficient or electric. It is best to discuss this with a dealership that sells the van models you are interested in.
there is no such thing as "hybrid electricity" per se. electricity is just electricity and that's it. a hybrid vehicle uses both electrical and some other form of power to work.... in a hybrid car, both internal combustion and electrical power are used. most commonly, the small gas engine is just a generator that generates power for the vehicle's batteries like in a Toyota prius. some hybrid vehicles have both the power to run off of the gas generator and a source of electricity, like a home electrical plug. there are also many other types of hybrid vehicles both as concepts and in production. -R.

Prius But that is quite an expensive car, though it can run on petrol or the electricity stored in its batteries. A more likely candidate is a Ford, particularly the Fiesta. If sales is an indication of popularity, which it for sure is, then the Toyota Camry is the most popular car in the U.S. as it sells more than anyone else and has since 2002. The Toyota Prius, as mentioned above, does not even rate in the top 10 but is the best selling Hybrid. The Honda Accord is the most popular as of April 2013 and is outselling the Toyota Camry but the year is not over. The most popular car in the entire world is the Toyota Corolla which outsells every other model.

The Toyota Prius offers 21.6 cubic feet (or 0.61 cubic meters - 610 litres) of storage room, compared to a similar car in the same class (the Ford C-Max) that has 24.5 cubic feet (0.69 cubic meters - 690 litres) the Prius is the smaller one. However, since taxi companies around the world use Toyota Prius the storage room is definitely sufficient for a business where you need to be able to load lots of bags/other goods into your car.
