Angry 2012 VW Touareg Hybrid

Hey guys,

I just recieved the newest Hybrid Kingdom eNewsletter the other day .

In this newsletter, the top story was about the 2012 VW Touareg Hybrid, which apparently gets 20/24 mpg and costs well over $60,000.

If anyone buys this piece of crap, I'll personally drive to wherever you live and kick you in the nads.

What is Volkswagen thinking? Why do they consistently produce crap that appeals to an invisible market?

Us one percenters need the eco image too don't you know? Besides nobody ever said you had to buy it. If you want to get outraged about something go look at a fisker karma or S400 hybrid.

I've said it before, this is what happens when executives get paid too much- they completely lose touch with reality.

check out the "official" numbers here.

I'm not outraged, I'm just a little annoyed with the stupidity of this.

I'm equally annoyed with the Fiskar and other crap, but I'm just getting over a bad Volkswagen hangover and it seems like a little verbal abuse is in order.

Volvo have opened the waiting list for their 64.695 euro - yes, that's 85,000 USD - V60 hybrid.

The waiting line starts right at the asylum ...

Funny how you people are ready to brand the buyers of luxury cars insane and psychotic as soon as they decide to buy a hybrid or plug in. Don't you have anything more important to be outraged about? Is your life that perfect?
