I haven't yet lost faith in hybrid-electric technology. Remember that Honda show car which produced 300kW and sipped 5.5 litres per 100 km?
Having said that, a very interesting comparison will be between a hybrid-electric vehicle and a non-hybrid equivalent. When the hybrid-electric Escape is released, it will be interesting to see how it fares against a four cylinder Mazda Tribute.
Remember guys, the technology is only new. I'm sure in the early days of the automobile people argued that horses were still better...
