That's sick. I want one. I wish they didn't have to be so ugly.

If I wasn't c*cling now, I would buy one for a commuter. My understanding is that there are several cars available in Europe, designed to be second cars, that get in the neighborhood of 100 mpg. One uses a 3 cylinder 2-stroke diesel.

Hybreds really aren't all that great. A good, efficient engine is difficult to improve on, as anything else done with it just leads to more losses.

Yeah, ugly like the Toyota Prius. Why can't Toyota make their little hybrid look slightly more normal, like the Honda Civic? I think the Honda Insight is at least stylish, but the Prius is just an ugly little lump.

0-60 in 20 secs is a little scary around DC but I'd do the 50HP version in a heartbeat. I miss my old little 50mpg Geo Metro.
