At Prius/hybrid supporters, after 10 years ( due to the harmful battery making process) a land rover defender pollutes less than a Toyota Prius ( Top Gear)

Description: The current Golf TDI BlueMotion gets fuel economy numbers at least as good as the Prius but is infinitely more fun to drive. So why does the Prius so completely rule its segment? The answer is complic...
