The people who would have bought a Yaris or a Fortwo, but have a small child or two. Sedan or hatchback, four doors or five, the Ford Fiesta comes with more options and bit more oomph than its high-mileage, low-size competitors. The 1.6-liter engine gives you 120 horsepower, and it claims to be able to sit five, although Ford never specifies just how big—or small—those five are supposed to be.

Apparently that is a feature of EPA regulations. For years we could not get the TDI vehicles because we did not have low-sulphur diesel. Now that we have the right fuel, I hear that the NOx emissions are too high when the TDI runs at its best fuel efficiency; when tuned to pass the NOx testing, fuel efficiency drops to the same level as a gas engine. I would love to know if these rumors are true. If they are, then there should be some discussion about whether the EPA rules need adjustment!

You had me convinced that I need one myself, and hence checked out some car accessories to see if I could make some changes to a hybrid to have it the way I want it. Great job you have! Melanie - http://www.carid.com

Hydrogen is not 'easy to make'. Water is an ash.

HYbrids are a waste! Fuel Cells are better, and should receive the subsidy instead - 1 power plant not two - cheaper and better. Air powered cars are coming too. Hydrogen is easy to make and can be done efficiently with todays technology.. if anyone is interested - I am looking to work in the field with a known workable solution .

I agree that the hybrid theoretically would give more during city driving because of regenerative braking. However, the efficiency of the internal combustion engine goes down compared to highway driving.

I luv the Cheve Volt and cars like it. When I do plan on getting a new car, I will be getting a Volt/Prius or something like it. The cheaper the electronics become the prices of hybrid is going to come down even more.
