1. No key. There's a "key fob" that can either be put into an ignition-type slot in the dash, or you can just have it in the car somewhere. Same thing with the door locks; if you're standing close enough with the fob in a purse or pocket, you can hit the button and unlock the car.
2. The lack of noise. When I'm sitting at a stop light and the car is running completely on battery, there's absolutely no noise. I have to let off the brake just to remind myself that the car can move.
3. The fact that I've driven 62 miles in it thus far, and the gas gauge has yet to go down from full at all.
4. The backup cam! It's one of my favorite features, but it still freaks me out. When you put it in reverse the cam automatically comes up to show you what's behind. And it beeps inside the cabin, garbage-truck style.
5. Which leads me to the next weird thing...the touch screen! All of the car's controls are via touch screen (with the exception of some controls on the steering wheel). Audio, trip info, and climate are all controlled by touch.
6. The transmission. There isn't a proper gear shift, just a stubby little handle sticking out of the dash that's used to put it in drive and reverse.
7. Which leads to the last, most obvious weird thing: push-button start and park. Just a button. So weird.
Shining green and sparkly in the sun.
Lots of cargo space for hauling books! There's storage space under this area, and the seats fold down flat.
My beloved backup cam. Great for short people like me who have trouble seeing out the back of anything.
