Is anyone tired of Hybrids? Part car, part generator. and I think it’s a cop-out for not being able to produce an affordable, long distance electric car (not include Tesla.)
But maybe the Cadillac CT6 Hybrid will change your mind or not.
The GM boast that the car produced 449 ponies at the rear wheel. That produced by the 2.0 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder and two electric motors. This will push the car from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds. If that’s a the good news here’s the worse – only 37 miles on a full charge – DUDES – why bother?!?!?!?!?! They are calling it a (Chevy) Volt (might be because it shares parts with the Volt) on steroids!!! Really? Well, it’ll have comfy seats, I bet!!!!
Toyota used the ‘Scion’ name like software developers the word ‘beta’ – not really ready for prime time. (I still hate the fact the Celica disappeared into that mess.) Frankly nothing much was worth buying under the Scion name until they produced the FR-S in 2011. The car was based on the previous 8-6 (86) concept and was a joint effort between Toyota and Subaru. Toyota was moved the 86 platform back under the Toyota brand and will be giving it a new look. Questions is will is cousin the BRZ get a new look? No one knows yet.
Enter stage right – the Elio P5, the new U.S. Car company. With it’s all powerful 60-hp 0.9-liter 3-cylinder front-mounted engine that can lay down 55 ft lb of torque, reach a top speed of over 100 mph and can get from 0 to 60 mph under 10 seconds. Get all this for under $7K.
It’s a trike-motorcycle, yes?
Thanks for reading.
