I am *hoping* that the Kona EV has an AWD option, but I haven't seen
anything official either.

I'm a big Subie fan too, but their lagging behind on EV's is a major
bummer. They had a crosstrek hybrid that was pathetic, so I resorted to
getting the highest MPG model I could find (the Impreza). I don't
really hold it against them though because they are a pretty small
manufacturer, so their R&D budget is a lot tighter than the big guys'...
Still, there are supposed plans for them to make the leap in 2-5 years...
But will it be too late?
