I wonder what will it sounds like with Mugen intake.
I think it's okay to be loud as a hybrid car. To me, I see hybrid system just like turbo and supercharge; for adding power. MPG improvement is just a plus. Why hybrid car has to return super high mpg? I'm glad Honda think it similar way and try to make the CR-Z. They should be even more aggressive.
to be honest. i like the hybrid system. besides it being complicated system which i don't like, i think electric motors are a really nice add on. (torque =])
i just think about it as a power add on. (even tho they used a smaller engine because its a hybrid). bringing sport into hybrid is a good idea and i think we should prove to people that its not stupid once its out.
