about 80 miles since none of the nearby Honda dealers had any in stock. Everything worked as anticipated, altho I expected to see the 'green leaf eco' indicator on the dash go off when the power shifted smoothly from battery to engine, and it didn't. Is there any way to tell exactly when the shift happens from battery to engine, other than the 3-dimensional image which you can pull up on the dash? Also, I was surprised after the power shifted from battery to engine that while viewing the 3-D image on the dash it seemed to go back and forth between power from the engine and then temporary power from the battery. I guess this models how typical Hybrid engines work, but given I was going a steady 70mph with no braking I was surprised this was happening. I tested out the HV Charge function and it did work and allowed me to shift to pure electric when I neared my home. Haven't been able to touch the car since I got it home as my wife will probably never drive anything else!
