Re: B Class mini site

It ain't bad - not as luxurious as the car I replaced - but it is huge inside, handles quite well - and in 5 $$$ gas prices a I am getting 27 MPG on average. (vs about 19 on the old 3.0 Litre 6 Cyl I had before)

Re: B Class mini site

Right now I really don't think it would sell well in the US

While a "smaller" car - it is huge inside and can compete with vehicles like the Subaru Wagons, RAV4, CRV etc but for that North Eastern US area, there is no AWD, so it would be at a disadvantage.

For other parts of the US (ie CA) the 2.0 litre 4 cyl would not have enough "raw HP" that is so popular in the US of A - the engine accelerates really well for the "Passing Maneuver" that 50 to 80 MPH burst - but it is definately not a road burner off of the line.

So if you factor in the 2 largest US markets, CA & the North East it is at a disadvantage in the "Value Equation"

ZAP has some US DOT compatible cars available - but they are apparently pretty expensive because of the aftermarket mods required -

Last I heard the next Gen car will meet DOT standards - although I don't know if the decision has been made to try selling them

If they come here, and they're cheap(er), I expect to see a lot of them around. Especially with gas prices soaring.
