    Exactly what I was worried about. Just a fly by with a look at one car from the outside. No details at all. A waste of time and all of my building excitement. No climax.

    No thanks! The exterior (front and rear) is too radical for me, and the interior is not an improvement.

    I'll keep my 2001, 2012 LB and 2014 c, and most probably skip forward to a Gen 5, assuming I stick with the "marque" at all.

    So does anyone know the horsepower figures? Battery power? Motor generators? Engine?

    Basically no, nothing at this point. Hood could not be opened and no specifics given on much yet.

    Probably different trim levels but again no specifics given on models etc.

    Probably parking. I saw a smooth emblem like the Gen 3 on one of the cars so I'm guessing the radar is behind the emblem again
