The big battery is what distinguishes the vehicle in the market. The 40+ mile battery range makes it a more useful commuter car. Honda does make a similar and lighter car with a smaller (1.2 kwh) battery, the Insight. US buyers also generally get the $7500 tax credit for having the big battery, so that lops a lot off of the price. Smaller battery is a smaller tax credit. Crass, but true. TBH, I do drive a 2018 one of these, and it is heavy, but I also run it as an EV about 80% of the time, which is a real savings of gas and carbon, since my area's electricity is more than 50% carbon-free.
