So obviously everyone will mention the lack of skirts... that aside... why the heck do the rear wheels look like 14s and the fronts look like 18s?

I applaud their efforts to make market penetration a priority over ultimate efficiency. Getting 200,000 people to save 10gallons is better than getting 20,000 people to save 20 gallons. They kept it "conventional" and lowballed the hybrid price point.
