This anonymous clan of slack-jawed troglodytes has cost me the election, and yet if I were to have them killed, I would be the one to go to jail. That's democracy for you. - C Montgomery Burns.

definitely my favorite of the 3 offerings at the moment.

but it amazes me there is no overdrive to completely lock it to EV mode. that way you could mash the throttle, get full EV power and not turn the engine on.

Surely if you're just popping down the shops to get a carton of milk that would be ideal, as it cant be good for the engine to just turn on and off for such short intervals?

I don't think that will be a big issue since most won't be daily drives and will simply form part of a collection.

I can't imagine someone doing this in a 918, but stranger things have happened :)

I'm sure the Porsche would be nicer to do it in
