See "Criteria" in post 1: there ain't no $4000 2nd gen Insights around!

Although I have seen more than a few Civic hybrid CVT's in that range.

But I'm just not a big fan of Honda's CVT IMA hybrid approach. (I'm not at all enamoured with my parents' 2009 Civic hybrid.)

I want true EV mode, and true ICE-off, 1-pedal pulse & glide ability. It's time to play with a Prius.
