    prius is a good choice for showing off . oh it does give better fuel economy

    civic's body parts are easily available, that is it's advantage

    here we go now we have civic hybrid and toyota prius war!! off
    I have had 3 civic hybrids sold em also in Pakistan its a 1000 time better then tht prius for in Pakistan why?
    Body parts of civic are of reborn so ur ok there the engine is same as the city ur ok there as for battery when numerous ppl out there,dont even know about a hybrid nor owned one but will give suggestions not pointing at any1!!!!!
    The battery in the Honda Civic Hybrid, particularly in cars manufactured since 2006, is covered by the manufacturer's warranty for up to eight years. However, the battery is designed to last for the life of the car.
    its economical no more waiting at cng lines, the prius parts body and engine arent tht available so if its get bump or light broken u will have to wait a bit then just getting a civic part from ur local auto parts guy!
    BUG ME AND I WILL CRASH INTO U!

    do you know of any supplier besides toyota that is supplying you parts for the Prius transmission???? Toyota sell the whole transmission (approx USD 7000) as rectification of the drive generator faults. Im not making this up, you can look for this problem yourself. Not to mention the Prius is not at all happy if it floods with water (rains in Pakistan) - you will be spending a good amount of your savings getting its HV systems sorted again, seen that happen in Pakistan. Hybrids will only make sense here if the manufacturer provides support and parts supplies for it - and to top it off it needs to meet the "wearout age/price" correctly, The Prius is not manufactured for longevity - you can see that yourself.

    You may be smug all you want but you are wrong by all sense of using a hybrid in Pakistan, a more economical and ecological option is to get our same "used car importers" to get small european diesel hatchbacks. They are built for markets where cars are used for 20 years.

    I agree. You are totally right.
    My brother is on US and a friend of his has a Prius. He was telling me that not even in the US, every Toyota Dealership services the Prius. There are a selected few who do it.

    Regarding, getting 20KmPL. I will rather take a chance with the Swift Diesel or a Yaris Diesel which give even better millage than a Hybrid.

    Incase someone has 2 Million rupees to burn and six cars already parked in the drive way, can try it. If it works, fine. If it doesnt, fine.
