I guess the "environmental" approach was more detrimental to the sales potential of hybrid tech among the mainstream customer base than the fuel-saving claims. Everyone who is reasonably-minded enough takes total cost of ownership in consideration while looking for a daily-driver, in contrast to those stereotypes about hybrid car owners willing to pose as "morally superior" to everybody else.
