Debatable. All depends whether you include the environmental impact of the actual production of the vehicles. Most use nickel batteries, and nickel mining causes more environmental damage than most cars do over their lifetime.

And if we're talking about the biggest seller of hybrids (Toyota) they only build them in Japan, which means the nickel mined in Canada is shipped all the way to Japan, then put into the car (with the other parts having been similarly shipped from all over the world) which is then shipped to wherever it's being sold. Not good.

Hydrogen fuel cells, however, spell the future of cars.
