Tim Blair on the relative benefits of purchasing a Prius to a real car…
Update: Our friend Ryan emails this…
Can’t say I like the Prius that much. But, I prefer the high/low approach…$29,000 has me:
a 2.5 ton truck with 10,000 lbs of cargo capacity and able to tow/haul 12,000 lbs of cargo at 10 mpg….
and a 2001 Honda Insight, able to carry me, a passenger and some luggage at 55 mpg….
I think this misses the point just a bit but Ryan is certainly well equipped.
