rmay, do you have any numbers handy?

Old Tele man - my first thought when I saw this car was that it's going to fire up the some modders who will want to expand the battery capacity and add a plug. Similar to the way some 2nd gen Priuses were modded, except this will arguably be a better as an EV than that car was.

"Nissan is offering the Note e-POWER to its Japanese customers in three trim levels: S, X and Medalist. Fuel economy on the JC-08 cycle is 37.2 km/L (87 mpg US, 2.69 L/100km); 34.0 km/L (80 mpg US, 2.94 L/100km); and 34.0 km/L, respectively. Pricing for the entry-level S-trim starts at 1,772,280 (US$16,900)."

Both metrics are lower FE wise than the 4th gen Prius on the JC08 cycle

And 4th gen Prius, for comparison:

Man, I'm getting old... I just noticed I already listed both cars' JC08 numbers in the first post.

In my defense, that was a while ago!
