It's pretty cool but not for me. almost 70 miles to and from work nevermind the "other" trips I do during work. I do about 3K a month.

According to the batt gauge in the pic the car might do about 80-100 miles on a full charge.

And yes the hybrids seem slow. A guy showed up at an auto-x with a Civic Hybrid and was tripping the start lights with his front and rear tires. We were starting him about 3 car lengths behind the start line so he would not do a double trip on the lights. And I thought electric was supposed to have a better pickup than a gas car?
