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.

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.
