The MKIV Golf TDI could do 50MPG on the highway, ten years ago. 40MPG from a small-midsize car in 2013 is wholly unimpressive.
Speaking of diesel/electric hybrids though, didn't Peugeot just do one? Some supercarish looking thing with a copper body.
Project Sipster was an 84MPG MKI w/ a MKIV 1.9L swap. I'm seriously considering building one as a project car. It's just too retardedly epic tomfoolery not to. That $7K project would be as fast as my Gen1 Focus was --but get 84MPG...
Did you see Audi is talking about releasing a production R18? They seem to be winning a few races with diesel-electric hybrids. I wish I crapped enough gold bulleon for such a toy...
