Anybody ever driven a hybrid? It's an odd experience. The Prius basically drove like a regular car, albeit with a nifty display. The GM hybrids are pretty neat, the only extra crap they pack into the interior is a charge/assist gauge, and they use regular production cars so you don't have an ugly car. The thing about GM's hybrids is if you let off the gas, they engine brake like hell, almost like having real tall gears. Of course, it's not the gearing, it's the regenerative braking kicking in. The braking is odd feeling too, because the actual brakes don't kick in unless you're at low speeds or standing on it. Otherwise, most of the braking is accomplished by engaging the electric motor as a generator. Real nifty design, originally they used it with diesel/electric locomotives to great success.
