I think my dream toy is the Mitsubishi i.
OK Freddy, as you are a natural leader of men, show us that you can use this car throughout just one ME winter and I will follow your lead. In your review please include cold starts and road trips and range at -10F, prewarming the car to about 50F prior to starting out on your journey with w/s cleaned by the hot air only please. With regen braking, ice and snow handling. Please also leave it outside during mud month near the coast and see if it still holds a charge. Please include a recycling strategy for the battery after 8 years as we need cradle to grave environmentalism here. The only reason I ask that is that the original Prius batteries are being replaced and they still do not have a recycling strategy. Go ask a Toyota dealer- they still are working on it.
If you can do it we all can do it. I'm on the edge of my seat.
