Could the Prius be harmful to the environment?

Green Cars News

The controversy centres on its use of a nickel metal hydride battery. The Prius uses a lot of fossil fuels during its hybrid battery development and now critics are calling for Toyota to correct its green statements. According to them, the nickel on the Toyota Prius battery is mined in Sudbury, Ontario and then it is smelted nearby where there are reports of damage to the environment. The nickel is then shipped to a refinery in Wales.
