I test drove a sport model 2.5 Roadster. Pretty darn impressive! I never had it in performance mode. I drove it in normal mode and in range mode, and even in range mode the acceleration blew me away.
I placed my order for a non-sport model 2.5, which is supposed to arrive in a week or two. I know the specs of 3.9 seconds zero to sixty for mine, vs 3.6 (?) for the sport. Since I will seldom if ever drive more than 100 miles in a day in it, I could leave it in performance mode all the time if I wanted to.
Is it right to guess that my non-sport in performance mode will accelerate harder, quicker, than the sport model does in normal mode? In terms of driving experience (as opposed to clock times) how would you compare the sport and non-sport models?
For context, I own a Prius, but my daily driver is a Zap Xebra that goes zero to 35 mph (its top speed on level ground) in about 31 seconds.
