No one is going to rush out and spend $35,000 to save $100 a year. Or even $200/yr.

- the Prius plugin, is only $3000-$5000 more than the the approx same feature regular Prius. (And you get a tax rebate for $2500)

- you already computed the savings at over $320...the $100 or $200 was a delta to that.

The American people have spoken. EVs are dying on the vine. Folks just ain't buying them. Simple.

Yes, it is a very slow ramp up, but the numbers are growing. Even the expensive Tesla's are doing 400 per week now.
