If you are expecting a lean sports car with some serious power then keep looking, this isn't for you. This car is in the same category as a $20,000 hatchback, and it blows everything else for the price out of the water. If you are a lead foot and love to romp on the gas from a stand still every chance you get you will find yourself draining the battery pretty quickly. This is not a high performance machine, its a sporty hybrid, and for what it is, Honda has done a great job designing this vehicle.
The colossal storage capacity and low end torque from electric motor plus the awesome styling interior and exterior.
Get rid of the 'fake' back seats and just have a huge trunk, there is a folding row where seats were originally designed to be, but Honda decided to gut them for the US production model so you are left with hard plastic shells, I folded mine down and will probably never bring it back up.
