If you were a car engineer, what kind of car would you design?


I would take a small diesel car like the VW Lupo or Honda Civic (~50 horsepower), and add an electric motor to reduce acceleration from 15 to 10 seconds.

This would yield highway EPA ratings of about 80 mpg... with folks like Rick Reece squeezing out 120-130 lifetime averages.
