    Which one ?

    Toyota Prius or Honda Insight ?

    The thing I don't like about the CURRENT hybrid models/designs today - DAMN LOUSY BOOT SPACE and DESIGN ... I am waiting to see if things get better later on ... seriously, you cannot go on FAMILY HOLIDAY with them .... LESS SPACE than MyVI !!!!!
    Everyday is a good day for GOOD FOOD and a GOOD LAUGH

    An electric car is probably only good for city driving.
    I believe the battery is limited to about 120Km travelling before the juice runs out. So if you need a return trip on a fully charged electric or hybrid car, think of the limitation of travelling within a 50-60 Km radius from your home... haha, can't even drive to Ipoh or Melaka.

    Of course, the hybrids have a petrol engine but without the electric motor, you will find the car pretty underpowered, not a great idea for long distance travelling

    Honda Insight cost less than RM100k, economy mode (run on battery 100%) only when travel around 50km/h or less, that's mean most of the time is battery + petrol.
