Commented On: 2015 Toyota Prius: Details Emerging For Next Hybrid Flagship


Green Car Reports 0 Views 27 comments
Michael we have already had a 100mpg hybrid,I owned one from 2000 the original Honda Insight, all aluminum but a low two seat coupe.Unfortunately its a lot tougher to achieve this efficiency from a five door family car.AS to Toyota switching to electric it may happen but there is still a need and market to improve the gas sipping hybrid before taking that plunge.You could always satisfy your urge and purchase a Leaf!

Antony you mention the hood being aluminum just as in the 2012 Prius v...I would like to add the hood has been aluminum from the second gen 04 Prius so this is nothing new.

Kevin there is a lot bantered about on capacitors can you please explain to me how they can be used in place of batteries. Capacitors are only good for quick charge build up and quick discharge possibly good in racing F1 etc but not in EVs in place of batteries. Do you know something I don't ??

Much better style job than the first one and I like the retro hub caps for a change instead of alloy wheels.

@Stuart...It has turned out that GM did their homework, and apparently Nissan did not.
Can you back that remark up with facts? or are we to just accept another unsubstantiated statement.

Commented On: So Who Exactly Buys A Scion iQ Minicar? Now Toyota Knows

@Charles Ellis, when you say the masses do you mean the over 50% of the worlds population that now reside in mostly "crowded" cities ? I would thought the smaller footprint the better.Psychology also is at play here and I'm confident a lot more would find the IQ suitable for their needs if they would try it for a while just as some EV users are finding limited range acceptable.Of course there are those needing more space and there are plenty of cars for them but the Smart and IQ are the "only" two in the true city car class so what's the gripe?

That's right GM acted immediately because it was a safety threat and we all know where that can lead with libel cases. This knee jerk reaction isn't needed over this issue and Nissan is probably gaining data while assessing the situation.If it is a major problem in real world use it may end in tears. The bottom line is owners do not know the system and can only speculate. When early adopters start questioning the technology without facts they fall into the same category as the nonbelievers who base their verbal diarrhoea on malicious gossip.Everybody wants immediate answers today, research takes time.

Commented On: 2013: Smart ForTwo Iceshine Brings Exclusivity To Niche Market

From the very beginning the Smart "was" a special edition car compared to the norm. It could be customised with changeable panels and interior bits or graphics and was like no other car before or since. I don't this offering of a special edition will accomplish anything other than a "few" extra sales. Having owned two Smarts and now an IQ I feel what they really need to do is refine it. This would be in the steering and ride dept.,improve the economy and offer a cvt automatic.The Smart steering ratio is abysmal,its slow and heavy whereas the IQ has quick light steering making the car feel more responsive which is what a small city car should be like, and its getting better mpg.I still love the Smart though and will have another,a cabrio.
