Note that they consider it a mid-size vehicle instead of a compact. These specs still don't show gas milage, but the horse power ratings are there as are the vehicle dimensions.

For those who missed it before here's a Link for lots of photos of the new '04 as well.

peak vs actual horsepower

hello everyone... new to the board... hope to be first in line with a '04 purchase...

anyway, point of my post... when adding the sum of two horsepower producing power plants, you must add the available horsepower at a given RPM... anyone who has seen a HP curve will realize this, but to get the "maximum" you must add these two curves... so it is ABSOLUTELY possible to have a max ICE HP of say 100 and a max electric motor output of 50 HP and have a true maximum of 110HP

just my two bits....
