Default Slight hesitation

Hello, I'm a new 2012 prius owner and I love the car but I feel a slight hesitation at take off. Is that common to hybrids?

Impossible to tell for sure without being there but yes probably.

If you have been stopped long enough for the gas engine to shut down, when it restarts after you start moving on electric, you can feel it slightly. It is more pronounced the harder that you are accelerating.
