Robert hasn't had a chance to drive any of these cars yet but going from previous KIA cars they are going to be extremely efficient with their use of electrons.

I like the look of them but again too big for my needs, should be great as a family car  8)

Very nice review!

One thing I do like about my I.C.E. Toyotas is that the engine shuts off whenever I come to a red stoplight. As soon as the light changes to green and I put my foot on the gas pedal, the engine automatically starts again, without missing a beat, and I'm on my way. At least it isn't wasting fuel while sitting at the traffic light nor is the engine grinding and spinning wearing its parts away during the stop.

Still, in electric mode, the Prius is somewhat eerie at first because of the lack of noise. I can't imagine what an all-electric vehicle must feel like to drive it.  ::)

Test drive one then you won't have to imagine  ;D

I can tell you that they are easy and smooth to drive, cheap to run and very quiet inside, so quiet that I have heard people talking loud over their engine noise in the car next to me at the traffic lights. You can also hear the birds and wildlife as you drive down country roads  :)

EV's do still have tyre noise which gets louder as you increase speed.
