Indeed, the thrill of the gas/electric car is green — not just environmental green, but spending green as well. As I drove halfway across town, I felt damn near altruistic, watching the special dashboard gauge swing from "Assist" when I accelerated to "Charge" when I decelerated, and watching the gas level budging nary a hair. Meanwhile, I thought about my gasoline budget, my last car repair bill, and the line on the Honda's sticker recommending the first maintenance inspection at 110,000 miles. Judging by the solid performance and relative quiet of the model I drove, I can anticipate a time when we'll all happily afford a new way to ease on down the road.
