Hybrid vehicles are now avaiable in Turkish market. As people were thought; hybrids are clean, save the planet, save the environment, save your grandkids and so on.
Technically true but pratically not !!! As the hybrids cars are mostly produced with non-recycled materials and have batteries which are toxic to environment is one issue. The other issue is, Asian hybird are production cost is much more than an ordinary car. As the nickel batteries arrive from Canada, vehicles’ structure is complicated and needs more time produce; it cannot be generalized as very green car. The end product is clean, lower emission. But VW Polo BlueMotion is doing pretty good also ;)
And current crash testing does not have special stages or criteria for hybrids vehicles as they hold very high voltage under the seat.
