Another else like to flirt with danger? In EV mode, I like to put the car in Sport and accelerate as much as I can on electrons but not enough to engage the ICE. Skirting the "grey zone" of the devil on the power gauge, I attempt to feather the throttle as close as I can to no mans land as I watch traffic silently fade away in my mirrors. 0-40mph times are very effective in real world applications. But..... sometimes the rush of smooth torque is too seductive and I blow through the border and activate the ICE; often not noticing till I get to the next stop and finally hearing it running. If it just happened, I'll reboot and try again. If I have to wait, I'll let the ICE go thru its warmup cycle. Originally I didn't like it (I have a C-Max that operates similarly and a Volt before that) but now it's a fun game to me and helps to tune my muscle memory sans detent. It also makes me marvel at the wonderful balance Honda engineers achieved with this car.
