You can't compare the price of the new Routemaster to a normal double decker. Long wheelbase hybrid buses always cost more.
And it's not fair to judge the emissions by the few with dodgy batteries (which are getting replaced for free).

It definitely has its flaws, but the series drivetrain is pretty revolutionary technology, so there are bound to be some teething problems.
