Yes, I'll give up the bikes when they pry them from my cold dead fingers... But not living in NYC, nor having access to transit we still find an auto necesary. I'll either take a Mini for our next car (one for the two of us) or if we absolutely have to upsize to a "big" car (re. 4 door) we'll go for the Honda Civic Hybrid.green22 said:I think I'll still keep my Dahon US $190
I think the SmartCar was marketed for urban use, not as a family car. I've heard that the Ford Think! Electric car (looks like a Smartcar) has been dropped.jmf said:Wouldn't be great for a vacation either if you wanted to take any luggage!
I convinced Rob that when our Cavalier goes, we should get the Civic hybrid to replace her. We absolutely love our Accord - that will be our travelling vehicle and the Civic will be our commuting vehicle. I almost wish I could afford another accident to hasten the coming of the Civic. hee.Runner said:
I just read an article about that - apparently through focus groups, the automakers discovered that people want their SUVs and Hybrid SUVs to be "tools". Thus the overstyling a-la XTerra's med kit in the rear door, and the like...Grassroots said:but still, as narcissistic and image-oriented as your average american is, why are the existing hybrids just plain ugly?
