    Looks like a Volt without the batteries to me and guess what, it gets the same 40MPG without costing $40k. hmmm…wool over the eyes.

    We’re celebrating 40mpg? Really? This is just a case of Americans not looking beyond their own borders. Cars in Europe easily achieve 50-60+ mpg without any hybrid technology and without being overly-expensive. Back in the 80’s, Japanese cars were getting more than 50mpg! 40mpg is pathetic.

    I know this is a classic, but i’m from europe and my opel (vauxhall) corsa 1.2 is like 5 years old and is 50 MPG.
    I think general motors is fooling you guys.
