    My comment was only that you said the Prius has been a major catalyst for widespread adoption of electric cars.

    Considering we don't yet have a widespread adoption of electric cars, and the Prius is a petrol electric hybrid, with almost non of the downsides of a proper electric car, I thought this was a dubious claim. You could argue the prius helped get us where we are now. You could also argue it will help hold us back from further progress as they try and milk that now dated technology for all it's worth.

    The argument I was looking to avoid was the one about whether Elon Musk is a cunt or not. My input on this would probably not help sway opinions.

    I'm not getting into this argument, but the Prius and Tesla are quite different - mainly because the Prius is a hybrid, most of which still get most of their energy form the petrol engine and can't be plugged in, while the Tesla is a pure Electric plug in.

    This might sound like a subtle difference, but is hugely different in terms or bringing vehicles to market and getting people to buy them.

    It should also be said that Toyota were keen to see things like the UK Government's ambition for zero emission vehicles by 2040 to be watered down, because they wanted to keep selling Prius based technology for decades to come.
