Raja, we been this way before and you're acting like you have never driven a Hybrid. Then again you could be just fooling me.
You're missing the point Paul, what I'm trying to say is that having the Energi allows you many more options than just having the subset car, the hybrid version of it. Like I said before, you HAVE to start your engine every time you go out, but with the Energi you can do the same if you so choose (EV later or don't charge it up) or you can use battery to make reasonable trips out of the power of the sun without polluting the earth. Check out my log below for today...home to the post office to mail some stuff, then to Natick mall to get some dinner, and back home. All 100% EV. That's the beauty of the Energi that you're so missing...
Trunk space is important to me too, and I like the higher deck as I usually transport my model helicopters on top of that deck and the height allows me to put my other luggage below the tail booms on top of the folded down seats. That deck actually works in my favor
TRUST ME 100% on this, I don't care about cornering speed maybe that's the only thing going for you, I'd rather go a little bit slower than lean into it as I'm driving a plug in hybrid not a sports car and don't care about acceleration, cornering at high speed or heavy braking. You know well that with these cars the name of the game is full blue coach bars for maximum performance in the range department!! I'll carry 250lbs any day to be able to go to Natick and come back without using a drop of fuel,
