It only goes 85km on an electric charge, that's either a lot of stopping or a lot of using the gas engine. Plus, you can buy a lot of car for $40,000. I could buy a Honda Civic with a CVT and over 4 years it would end up costing about the same all in.

And buying a car with a motor, even if it's as a backup generator kind of defeats the whole allure of buying an EV: not having to deal with the expensive mechanical components that need constant maintenance.
