Bet you, you will be surprised because this engine has the similar performance Honda engine 1.8L. The only thing that make me worry is the maintance cost, I means the cost of batteries and servicing. So far, I don't have any experience on using such kind of Hybrid car. I guess it will be a small gambling for user. Anyway, it shouldn't be an issue if this car is getting popular someday, I hope. Apparently, Everytime when you use a new invented technology you have to take some risks. Good luck to you and me!!
