Australian hybrid car roundup

The world release of the Lexus LS600h and LS600hL luxury hybrids and this excellent comparison between the Toyota Prius and Honda Civic Hybrid has prompted us to determine what the options really are for the Australian driver looking for a new hybrid car. Quite limited would be a fair conclusion.

Below $50,000 you have the Honda Civic Hybrid and the Toyota Prius in two different variants. Above $50,000 Lexus provides the GS450h and RX400h models. That’s it!

Update (22 May 07) – AutoblogGreen are reporting that Kia are expecting to have a hybrid Rio on sale in 2009.
