    I’m not running out to buy a Hybrid anything, although the Lexus models are amazing, as another user pointed out. Tesla’s p11d has made me come around quite a bit on full electrics, but they still do not compare to combustion from a practical standpoint.
    You’d have to do the math to see if the cost of the battery is offset by the fuel savings of high octane fuel over the same time period for it to be viable cost wise, and although batteries are getting better everyday, until we stumble across a newer/better technology, we’re about at our limit. It is chemistry, after all.

    For me to go all in on an electric, I’d still need:
    1) range of 400 miles or more.
    2) charge time of less than 8 minutes.
    3) the ability to do a burnout.

    Until then, I’ll stick with my purebred autos.

    I believe your referring to CAFE standards.

    We are about to be there with new battery technology that involves diamonds and radioactive waste. These batteries will outlast us. Then look up that Venadium Redux Battery technology they mention there at the end of the article.

    Well why not? If it's still fun to drive and the price is right (it won't) then it should be a winner. Maybe it's attract non Mustang drivers to buy.

    I have to wonder if Ford and other manufacturers are developing more hybrids as a step-stone to an eventually shift to non-fossil fuels. God help us if the Green New Deal ever becomes a reality to that end, as AOC and her Progressive/Socialist comrades want.

    I won't say I'd never drive a Mustang hybrid, but at this point my mindset and preferences would have to be swayed quite a bit for me to choose one.

    and of course theres the ****ing politics...

    Hybrid Mustang will just keep the brand relevant for years to come REGARDLESS whether any of you can still keep up ... either HP wise or employable skills wise :)
