I didn't think I was off topic?? My bad.
The thread is about the variety of other non-toyota or non-Honda hybrids.
The question was raised about what is called a hybrid.
We can go by the car companies definition of what a hybrid is:
This would include anything the car companies call a hybrid no matter what features it has or does not have.
It was suggested that we break from the car companies use of the term hybrid in our choices of what we consider a hybrid:
I was exploring the effects of making our own determination of what we will consider a hybrid.
If we are going to pick and choose what hybrids we are happy to call a hybrid. I would think it would be best to think about and discuss our criteria for choosing.
Otherwise I would say we go back and just accept any vehicle the car company calls a hybrid as a hybrid.
if we accept the car companies hybrids as hybrids:
