Well most people just take a look at it and assume its some v8 or v12 powered supercar and snap a couple shots on their phone and move on down the road. Other's see that it says hybrid on the not-exhausts on the back, assume it's a normal hybrid, take their pics and move on but for the most part, those that stop to ask to truly get an understanding of the car are car lovers and get interested in the technology/design of it. I honestly haven't come across anyone that has had a reaction because it's electric and the gas we have around here. But from my own observations, I've seen one Volt in town and I've seen one other Karma around (although there should be around 7 of them in town by now), and for the most part everyone here drives their big v8 powered trucks. Things here certainly aren't geared towards moving into the electric car/ environmentally friendly, non-fossil-fuel-reliant as they are in certain other states such as california. There are no public charging stations around here and no kind of incentive at all towards buying an electric car. What very little public transport type programs we have here have moved somewhat towards natural gas powered as we have huge surpluses of that here so to answer your question, I don't get much of a reaction to it but the state as a whole really doesn't seem to care very much to move into this new era of transport.
