Airport cabs spend most of their time idling. The ability to creep forward in line on battery power alone is worth the extra expense for a hybrid.

I'm pretty sure the Prius V (wagon-looking model) is the same size as the regular Prius except the back isn't sloped as much -- same length, etc. I looked at both just last week and have been told this by salesmen at two Toyota dealerships.
