I think you see "Prius" mentioned predominately because it is the only hybrid that seeks gas milage. There is no other with anything like it to advertise and neither Toyota, Honda, Ford, or any others have even mentioned hybrids in the seeking of higher gas milage. They do advertise their hybrids hoping you will confuse them with the Prius's high gas milage but you never will see "buy the new Toyota Highlander hybrid and get forty MPG."
I can certainly understand that the guy that bought a SUV for his whole families need several years ago when gas was a buck twenty a gallon and still has a three year mortgage on the car and can't buy a better milage car if he wanted without a three or four month wait, would resent to see some single driver flying by him in a HOV lane while he sits in traffic economically unable to do anything about it. If you don't want to see resentment, don't use the HOV lanes until hybrid cars are available to purchase.
