Hello all, doing a survey for my intro to stats class and chose to make a comparison between diesels and hybrids. I chose this topic because I commute a lot, somewhere on average of 20k miles a year. Anyways this poll will be aimed just at hybrid owners since this is the Volt forum. Thanks for helping!

What's your definition of a hybrid? A Prius? No way. A Volt? Sure.

Ditto.
An electric-fuel hybrid? Sure (electric first, other second)
A fuel-electric hybrid? Probably not (fuel first, electric second)

There really is a large difference in how the two styles feel when driving.

I own a Volt and plan to get an all electric vehicle next. So which one to I check?

Yeah, I have to agree. There are pretty much two flavors of hybrids. The primarily electric ones (Chevy Volt, BMW i3) are typically powered by electricity and gas consumption is rare. The primarily gas ones (like the Prius) have such a small electric range (if it's not a plug-in hybrid, the range is zero) that you consume gasoline typically whenever you drive it.

That said, I have a Chevy Volt, and would be interested in getting a primarily electric hybrid for my next car.

Sure, I'd buy another EREV.

Methinks the Mods will shut down this thread soon.

Can't answer. The poll does not include EREV (Extended Range Electric Vehicle) which by SAE definition is not a hybrid
Sorry, If that answer doesn't make sense then you shouldn't be creating polls on this subject matter

As we have seen time and again, just because a poll can be quickly created doesn't mean it is created well or delivers meaningful data. Most polls are ill-constructed, not thoroughly thought out, and of limited value. I'm not picking on the OP, this seems to be the case for the majority of polls on this site. Even the way the questions are asked can skew the results.

One possible solution is to first announce you are creating a poll, describe what the goal is, what questions you are thinking of asking, etc. and then let the community weigh in before actually creating the poll. This would help address some, if not all the deficiencies that seem to crop up again and again.

Yes, I'm closing this.
