The big car makers have really perfected their hybrid drive trains. The new Prius will even go 0-60 in ~7s, which ain't bad for a gas sipper. It's definitely possible you could get 20 years without a battery replacement if you aren't a heavy driver. That 10 year number seems suspect. Probably more like 15 years. But even with the cost of a new battery you'll save a lot money on gas in the long run.
I know EVs are getting more hype lately, but from what I've read hybrid technology is more reliable and they're reasonably priced.
