Nissan Pathfinder owner here. Waiting for a Rav4 Hybrid. I would have gotten one already, if they had it. I would never buy an American car again... so no Ford Escape for me. Maybe Camry hybrid, but don't really want a car. Waiting continues....

Regarding hybrid batteries:
Regarding hybrid batteries: Today's hybrids use NiMH batteries that are both landfill safe and very recyclable. I'd suggest that that makes them pretty environmentally friendly. Future hybrids will use Li-ion batteries which are also landfill safe and recyclable.
FWIW, the lead-acid starter batteries in regular non-hybrid cars is hazardous, however, over 95% of them are recycled today so even they aren't much of an environmental problem.
