Go to any Volvo garage loads to petrols still hanging about,I was comparing a hybrid to a purely petrol. It was ball park around 20K.
Cheapest NEW Volvo currently listed on Autoscout is a XC40 for CHF 33,990. At 129ps this can't be compared to any of the current range. Volvo have decided to push their range upmarket - the price difference is not due to hybrid.

Demonstrators are not new cars.

Hydrogen can be produced from nuclear, wind and you don’t need to cut down a forest and dig the side off a mountain to produce a battery so is much more nicer than lithium batteries that the current electric cars use.Hydrogen is the future not just for the auto industry.

If you read I was talking about the calculated C02 for manufacturing of a car not the entire life span.
Yes, hydrogen can be produced from all those. But the process is massively less efficient than battery. This is the link medea posted earlier which explains it

FWIW, l would agree hybrids are not worthwhile. Disadvantages of both. Far better to go full electric.
