Hybrids KICK GAS

ReviewMuch more fun than we ever imagined.
Quick and fast. Cruises on highway at
70-90 with no problem other than having
to occasionaly downshift. Concentrating
on milage we get upper 60mpg's. Driving
fast low 50's. In city, Washington DC,
no option other than drive aggressively
we get low 40's. Great city car because
nimble and quick. When supersized, dark
colored SUV's tend to get aggressive
it's a simple matter to leave them in
the rear view mirror with a smile. Many
people think the car is all electric
and most don't know it gets up to 70
mpg and can go 115 mph. Commercial
media, the one source most Americans
use for news, does a horrible job of
informing the public.
Best FeaturesFilling up with gas at home and driving to work while averaging 73 mpg. Silently coasting through parking lots, by people and into a parking space with the engine (auto)off. Getting 125 mpg at 70 mph while drafting a safe 2 seconds behind a semi.
Worst FeaturesPassenger side blind spot! Better audio system. Narrow tires tend to track in road groves.
