I've read similar articles but this is the most clear. Why would you buy a car with an effective life of only 100K miles ? (100K miles is expected life of the battery, replacement cost in today's dollars about $8K I'm told).
You probably over-specified the search. Son't type in the whole title. Different sources have the same story under different headlines. Search only key words. Try "hummer prius" and you will find several.
Yeah, FR’s search leaves a lot to be desired.

I didn’t know nickle was such a dangerous material.
This article was debunked....
but there are studies which show the Prius costing a lot more than most cars in terms of money, production, etc.
Can you imagine what the driver in that little Jap junk box would look like in a head-on with an H2? Their headstones could say “Died getting 45 MPG”. I don’t want my family riding in one of those things.
GM indicates it needs to sell the Hummer line, however
NEW YORK, June 5 (Reuters) - General Motors Corp’s (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) iconic Hummer brand could fetch up to $750 million in a sale, but would likely generate little interest and the company would probably have to look overseas to attract even a few buyers.
