L.A. Times' Highway 1 section has a review, generally favorable, but not happy with a 'lack of excitement." The best part? This tidbit implying Toyota doesn't think an EV switch harms the battery or gives emissions problems:

"The car has an electric-only mode button that will allow it to move at speeds up to 25 mph on all-electric power for six-tenths of a mile. Call it the domestic stealth mode, the one you use to sneak home late at night."
