The move to hybridisation

When I bought my 'new' car (a Toyota Prius), my wife jokingly asked the owner of the dealership we bought it from if they ever got any Lexus hybrid cars in. (She has driven a Lexus for the past twelve years ... and loves it!) To our surprise his reply was in the affirmative ... and that he was taking delivery of one this week.

He telephoned my wife yesterday to tell her that the car she was interested in had been delivered, and asked it she would like to see it. She was (very) interested ... and this morning we drove to the dealership to look it over and to give it a test drive. As a result it looks as if we are very likely to be a two (petrol/electric hybrid) car family in the near future.

  1. You may have trouble 'breeding' them Bob, hybrids are not renowned for their fertility!!

    Good move though.

  2. They may not be fertile, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't knock before entering the garage.

  3. Jim Duncan,

    Would the offspring be a Lexota or a Toyus?

    All the best,

    I always knock first. Otherwise I might see something that would shock me!
