In Poland, they make an engine that is powered by diesel with only 2 cylanders, but its turbocharged and it gets like 70 something MPG. i think a car equipped with it is around 20K, and it doesnt look futureistic. i also think that GM bought the rights to produce that engine in a car in America next year.

Who wouldn't?! I sure would! Makes you wonder why we are not already driving these? Who prevents companies like this from gettine the capitol they need to put one in everyones driveway?
My aunt lives in Carlsbad (in San Diego county) but I would bet I will never see one in Kentucky! We have alot of gas stations though!
And you know, with some sales to build capitol, they would come out with Dans' 4 door too!

intresting....dont like te car design though(just looks plain ugly to me) Though if they get it to look normal, and stilll get that range that would be cool. Though ill stick with my gas car...gets double+ the electric....though the hybrid....man those should sell if they get the design right.

well, the whole problem with the body is, that its UBER aerodynamic, which is why it gets 300MPG. if they cut down and make it look more "normal," that will kill the MPG it gets...

I think it looks like an airplane without wings - I'd still drive it! Maybe it's just us old guys that like the Sci-Fi thing...

I agree though, that's what makes it so aerodynamic.
