    A confusing part

    Hi

    New hybrid cars are on the market in North America. While these cars are better for the envionment, they remain outside of the price range of most
    lower to middle class people.

    I can't get the underlined part not only in the grmmatical structure but also of the meanig in the sentence.

    Please help me to understand it.

    Thanks.

    Most of the people who are in the lower class or middle class (income levels) cannot afford these cars.

    It's not "most lower" but "most of the lower- or middle-class people."
