    looks pretty nice to me. what am i missing that makes it so ugly to everyone else?

    and it's a hybrid, i'm sure 0-100 in 5 seconds was not on the design criteria.

    Anything thing I say is my opinion, all care, but no responsibility taken.

    Yep it does look sweet.

    And why cant a hybrid electric be quick. It can be done.
    I will test drive one though if they ever come here.
    Can anyone find a figure on the weight?

    I can see someone making K20 conversion kits for this sucker too....

    I like the mugen concept, original isn't fantastic IMO.

    Sure it's a hybrid, but it's also a CRX replacement. I'm sure most potential buyers would appreciate a little grunt... It frustrates me when companys re-invent and awesome-e-fy an old car and the decades newer version is slower. Why does it need to be a hybrid anyway? I'll bet with hybrid technology and 20 years of fuel economy technology behind it, the consumption figures wont be drastically different.

    Hybrid as an alternative to the petrol motor is like using a band-aid on a broken arm. Its not a long term solution and its not much of a short term one either.

    What do you reckon about price?

    In true Honda style, it will probably be just that little bit more than what you think is reasonable. But here's hoping it sets a new trend for good looking hybrid cars.

    I do like it though... with looks to kill, one would think it would sell.

    On the brightside it's certainly a cooler alternative to the Prius.
