Hybrids have no smell nor do they make a sound, i find them to be a bit soleless. Opinions normally change over time but if you ask me right now (performance numbers being equal) id take a gas engine over an electric or hybrid.

In my humble opinion i dont think we will have to worry about not having a gasoline engine option in our lifetime, probably in our childrens lifetime as well.
Hybrids do make sounds, especially when the motor is running
