the sooner you get it to market the better..
its time has come .

this concept and philosophy will catch on like fire..

especially since the "Fortwo"
is somewhat larger then the original european "Smart" version.

I think the Fortwo should be sold in the U.S. with the 3cyl.turbodiesel also,60mpg.sounds really good to me.But then I think a 100mpg hybrid version would be even better.

Either the plug-in or the diesel would be great. I'll get the gas one just to make a statement and support the Smart Car future.

A single piston diesel running a turbine generator would be the way to go. With that new supercar up and running using that setup doing 230mph and getting 300mpg under certain conditions....that is the way to go with the Fortwo. Either way, we are getting a gas model around the first of the year for one of our company vehicles.
