    One thing that's not apparent from this update - for this price, the Accord is completely loaded. If you equip the Fusion Energi or Volt equivalently, they are at least 2k-3k more.

    Dear Honda, please follow the Toyota route. They realized that special Camry styling for the hybrid did not work, so they cancelled it. Seriously, many hybrid buyers don't care for ugly chrome tail lamps and Gahhh inpiring front ends.
