And a followup question.The web site says:

"Operates up to 62 miles per hour under normal conditions on electric power alone, using no fuel."

Is there a separate switch/button that has to be activated to do this or is that the default way it works?In other words,when you start the car & go,does the gas motor stay off till demand exceeds what the electric components can provide?
Also,will it be as quiet as a Nissan Leaf till the gas motor kicks in?
