I guess it just seems that a vehicle shouldn't need essentially two complete drive-trains.

I think it would be great if everyone had an all electric car for local trips and commuting to work, and a gas car for longer trips and going out of town.

I can't think of anyone I know who only has one car and it's a hybrid.

I suppose "complicated" in my book is anything I can't fix myself in my driveway! So far there aren't even USED hybrids that I can afford!
