Today's hybrid vehicles get *all* of their power from gasoline. They should be compared on an equal footing with any other form of transportation. If the city council wants to promote lower CO2 emissions, then they should regulate and reward that directly.
Carpooling, mass transit, walking and bicycling for instance all have far smaller CO2 footprints than single-occupant, petrol fueled vehicles.
Please construct the regulations to encourage lower CO2 emissions and let the market figure out the most popular ways to achieve those reductions.
