Hummer Vs. Prius ??

Ok, I agree that this is only a symbolic debate. Hummer and Prius are only frings vehicles, each selling about 3 to 5 thousands a month. Compare that to average monthaly sales of over a million cars and trucks in the U.S. market. However, there is one distinction: Hummer is so big that the only way for it to go is down. On the other hand, Prius with all is hype is making sure that the hybrids become a well known entity in the american car market.

It is impossible to compare these 2 absolutely different cars.
As for me people always will admire and adore Hummer, and will hire Hummer limo as a wedding transport, not Prius.
Prius is an usual car, which is million in the world. And when these 2 cars will be moving along the road, people will definitely gaze after Hummer.

Nowadays all big car producing companies started to produce hybrid. GM producing hybrid trucks, Lexus few month ago started to produce a huge Limousine, so I believe that after 5-10 years every company will produce a hybrid cars.

Building a Toyota Prius causes more environmental damage than a Hummer that is on the road for three times longer than a Prius. As already noted, the Prius limo is partly driven by a battery which contains nickel. The nickel is mined and smelted at a plant in Sudbury, Ontario. This plant has caused so much environmental damage to the surrounding environment that NASA has used the ‘dead zone’ around the plant to test moon rovers. The area around the plant is devoid of any life for miles.
