Guess SOMEbody hasn't been in a new Civic lately...hahaExterior looks a little better than prius.
But the interior... oh boy I wouldnt want to be in there.
Nice attempt at copying the Volt speedo...
Same drivetrain? It says it uses the IMA system with a CVT.This is going to kill the Prius. Way cheaper, same drive train, and for those that care, Japanese. Toyota must be going nuts right about now.
A cornerstone of the cost reduction is the refined version of Honda's award winning IMA system, combining an electric motor with a refined, low emission and efficient petrol engine. This petrol-electric engine and CVT gearbox together give low CO2 and NOx emissions, and also achieves inherently excellent refinement.
Sounds like we shouldn't expect much of an improvement over the Civic hybrid, not Prius levels.No Fuel Economy numbers?....meh
CO2 emissions and fuel economy are targeted to be at a similar level to the existing Civic Hybrid, giving drivers a flexible and highly practical lower environmental impact car.
I thought this was a hybrid ala the Prius. That was all the hoopla in the press I saw.Same drivetrain? It says it uses the IMA system with a CVT.

It will certainly offer the image of the Prius but won't have the same drivetrain. Hopefully it will offer an improvement that is noticable over the Civic since it should be more aerodynamic. We'll have to wait for the production model to see how good it is.
