    The European hybrids available here at the moment are upmarket ones. The replacement battery cost a bomb unlike the Japanese and Korean ones.

    Better check the price before buying one.

    Not sure about other places in Europe but in London, Prius is popular for a different reason.

    Partly due to fuel efficiency, but mainly because they are exempted from the "congestion charge" that most vehicles have to pay to enter central London during Monday-Friday daytimes.

    Other electric cars are also exempted but I think Prius is a cheaper vehicle for taxi compare to Audi A3 or BMW i3..

    The hybrid car battery pack is made up of many size 18650 cells. Some cars use nickel metal hydride while others use lithium ion.

    Lithium ion ones are smaller, lighter and pack more power than metal hydride ones.

    Sime Darby Hyundai gives 8-year unlimited mileage warranty for the Lithium polymer battery. Cost to replace currently is RM15K but expected to be lower as the battery technology advances.

    Of course one cannot just pick up on certain points to compare the Ioniq with the i8. BMWs have a different target customers with specific demands from the car they have chosen.

    If a hybrid/electrical car can deliver about the same in terms of power output, safety and comfort features with a petrol/diesel car AND there is substantial price incentive like tax reduction, etc, then I would say hybrid or EV is a good consideration.
