The battery may or may not be an issue. Honda has issues with their packs where other mfgs don't seem to have any. The warranty on the battery I believe is 10yr/150k, so keep that in mind. There are also write ups on this site to refurbish your battery. Also, the car can be driven without the battery and it still gets amazing fuel economy. If you're doing highway driving the pack is used very little anyways.
