"Well....economy. I mean absolutely, I mean if you need an incentive that's the best incentive. I mean, the amount that I'm saving in gas on this car, compared to like an SUV (sport utility vehicle), is making the payments. So it's like a car for free."

"The hybrids are without a doubt here and now and ready to go.
