    A face only a mother (or design engineer) could love

    Hyundai is finally getting into the hybrid competition with a design concept that almost makes the Pontiac Aztec look......."cute" :P.

    Actually doesn't look too bad from the rear or side, but that front end is downright scary.

    Seriously, the front looks like it's the 'Joker-mobile', circa 1966 Joker.

    Don't see where they get that. The problem with these hybrid cars is when you have to replace the battery. The Prius battery lasts a few years and costs about between $5,000-7,000 to replace (depending on who you listen to). Even now that they've added solar panels (to run the radio and a/c), the life of the batteries is a huge cost concern.

    I don't think it resembles Nancy Grace at all... not sure where they get that.

    Quite true, however, if the kids over at MIT keep working miracles similar to this one it won't be long til the price starts to come down.
