If I were to choose one, I would go with hybrid. I have too much range anxiety to drive an electric car because I'd be wondering if I'd make it home. With a Hybrid, you have the gas engine, and the regen brakes will charge the battery pack. Pure electric has the brake regen, but when you're out, you are out. Then you have to find a charger and wait however long it takes to charge the damned battery. It would be great to charge up at a shopping center for free. Do your mallaerobics and get your senior coffee, then head out after our car is charged up. However, how many times do you see an empty charger these days?
