Sorry. Didn't mean to sound callous. They should have people with limited mobility testing the device. Those two look young and healthy to me. I think it sets a bad example.

One thing if for sure. In three years time, those two guys are going to weigh about 30-40 more pounds than they do now. Ride a bike or walk.

Looking at the VW website in the UK, the 110 hp version would be about 1500 US dollars less than the standard 140 hp engine. That would be a nice option to have in the US. UK and EU have many different engine choices. I think it was at least 7.

Learn to drive a manual. It's not that hard, and I would be willing to bet, you would be happier with the way the car drives, vs an auto. And it is cheaper too. Win, win.

I thought that I had heard, years ago, that lugging was hard on an engine. I this not true?

I would probably buy this if it were available in the US. People all over the US drive older cars that would not pass the current safety regulations. Does anyone have any stats on the # of deaths/injuries per car wreck in the UK/Europe vs the US for a particular type a car, for comparison?

Commented On: The Gas Tax System is Broken; Are Electric Cars At Fault?

As long as the tax is relatively low. Say $30-40 for a set of tires, which probably will not contribute much. Otherwise, if it's $300-400, which it probably should be, tire theft will skyrocket.

Commented On: 2014 Ford Fiesta Vs. Mitsubishi Mirage: Which Will Have Highest Gas Mileage?


Green Car Reports 0 Views 12 comments
Mitsubishi should have spent a little more time on the styling. Great mpg, but it looks like a turd, IMO. I do like the looks of the Fiesta, but would have to agree with others that real world mpg's will suffer at the hands of the average driver. It would be interesting to see how each car does over at the mpgomatic site run by Daniel Gray. Conscientious driving will pay off for both of these cars. Just stay in the right hand lane, and check your rear view for Xiaolong's Volt.

Commented On: 2016 Chevrolet Volt To Have Lower Electric Range, 30 Miles Or Less?

If that is the case, they would be wise to give you the option of how much electric range you would like to have with your Volt. Kind of like Tesla does with their Model S. Three options 30,45 or 60 miles of battery range. And I hope the make the ICE quite a bit more efficient than the current one.
