I1->HCH1 here.

They did note some 17000 of those went hybrid -> electric too (though not in that crappy article).

Hybrid cars: Only 35% of hybrid-car owners buy another one, Polk says - latimes.com

The numbers are skewed. They tracked it based on those who traded in a hybrid. Hardcore hybrid owners don't trade their cars in to a dealer. They drive them until they drop or sell them or keep them as a 2nd car.

They were tracking those unhappy with owning a hybrid.

A more descriptive statistic to me would be the percent of owners of hybrids vs. gassers of a certain year that still have their cars.

Say... for 2006, x% of hybrids are still original owner, y% of gassers (of a similar class!) are still original owner.

That'd be much more telling to me.
