vehicles of that complexity will require more jobs and cost billions more to produce great you would think the reality of those jobs is they will be elsewhere in the world.


Yet another round of why do the things NEO posts always seem to contradict themselves?

ever hear of the honda crx made back in the 80s that got 50 mpg?

Petrol cars are already achieving that in combined mileage, eg urban and highway.

www.fuel-economy.co.uk...
Those figures were from 2006 so theyve probably gone up a lot too.

Diesels can easily get 65mph.

US cars are so far behind because theyve never needed to get good mileage before.
