This car is overall well-built. I am not as impressed as I thought I would be. For around $30,000, this car does no better in fuel efficiency than my old 1995 Honda Civic VX hatchback. I once got 65 MPG on a trip in my Honda. The Prius, with all its technology and synergy drive, can't beat the fuel efficiency of a 13 year-old, non-hybrid, 5-passenger hatchback. Above that, the battery packs on this might soon run out. I'm thinking I'll sell this and look for my old Honda.
The egg shape - it's intriguing. I like the interior. It's more roomy than an outside view of the car might hint.
Improve the gas mileage. Make the $30k people spend on this car worth it. A little more 'pick-up-and-go'. My Honda (5-passenger) hatchback got better gas mileage, yet was more peppy than the Prius.
