SMH - GM / Ford - City Cars, Hybrids and electric.

Post by a4x4kiwi »

Artilce in the SMH.

SYNOPSIS: Models such as the Toyota Yaris, Mazda2, Suzuki Swift and Honda Jazz sip fuel at a rate of between 5.5 and 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres, not as good as a Prius, which is nearly twice the price.

THE type of cars we drive will change dramatically within five to 10 years. The world's biggest car makers have accelerated the development of electric cars and other more fuel-efficient vehicles.

They will not be in showrooms within five years as it takes five years to design, engineer and build a new model.
