Green cars are great if you can afford one. Payback in savings of fuel costs goes straight into replacing expensive battery packs.

Let's hope it doesn't go the way of the Mazda Wankel engine from the late '70s.

"I wouldn't touch a Ford if you paid me."

Skyactiv cars are not Fords. Ford sold their 20% stake at the pit of the Great Recession and retain less than 5% I believe, which is not enough to have any influence over the way the company does business.
