wtf? I thought hondass was supposed to be re-designing the element? like the scion did... the 2010 is the same old ****ty thing no hybrid, no deisel, no white no better engine nothing... **** IM MAD!
Ford's Escape Hybrid is heavier and seems to be doing well. Hell, there's even a Chevy Tahoe hybrid which is MASSIVE. The element could be made into a hybrid easily if honda that the drive or desire. Diesel would be better though!Hybrid?.....Not a chance....The E is too big and heavy for that to even be a consideration.
My advice to you? Don't buy one. Also stomp your feet up and down, cross your arms, furrow your brow, and make a whining sound! Feel like I'm repeating myself.. weird.i dunno i think honda sucks now wether or not they had it planned. they could have at least done something different besides that odd dog basket
okay that really only depends on the type of battery they use, some new technology being introduced into hybrids in the upcoming hybrid models is actually easier to shape which would make it easier to fit into a model like the elementI don't know what you mean about this engine sucking... Be assured that if Honda made a hybrid version of the E the gas engine would end up being smaller. You would also lose a lot of room in the E with the batteries which would take away from it's large cargo space.
who cares what "honda says" people seem to be pretty smug with the vue and escape, they aren't near lightweight cars. they are big but not as big as the hybrid escalade, which shows that not too much space, if any at all, would be taken away from the element.Honda has said before that they feel Hybrid technology is really only effective on smaller light weight cars.
What is your specific issue with the engine in the E?and when i say a better engine i mean our engine suck?!?! what don't you get?
i mean, what part of "better engine" don't you understand?
