nah...strictly dyno stuff.

But I think it goes to show that that driving style is imperative. Each platform has pros and cons. There's LOTS of other vehicles to browse through as well. This does help to show the potential of each. Of course, if you pay MSRP then the hybrid doesn't match up at all :) Otherwise, they seem fairly competitive.
