Going green continues to be expensive and without subsidy from the rest of us will not happen. The latest energy savings deal is a 100mpg Ford Fusion coming out. It will sell for about $40K, roughly twice what a gas powered Fusion costs. Fuel savings over five years are estimated at about $6K, meaning its not worth buying unless you like the novelty.
Then there's the matter of resale value and maintenance costs, which could be high for new, exotic technologies.
Its like solar and wind...Neat technology if you have the rest of us paying for it.
