I went to test drive the Clarity yesterday, and unfortunately, there wasn't a car in the lot with a fully charged battery. The engine came on almost as soon as I hit the accelerator, and wow - the noise it made didn't sound good at all. The engine sounded like it was straining on acceleration, and I felt like it really struggled to get up and go. I had pretty much made up my mind that I was going to buy this car, and soon, but that engine sound is making me hesitant. For you who already have the Clarity, what are your thoughts on ICE performance? I know the goal is to use the car in EV mode as much as possible, but when that just isn't possible, I want to know that the ICE performs well. Thanks for any input you guys can provide on that. Secondary question for those with light interior -- how hard is it to keep the sueded part of the dash and door panel clean?
