Fiat 500 TwinAir driven

  1. the EEC tests that these cars are subject to are converted to the larger gallon afaik as it's what we use here (4.5 litres), as do the UK magazines who couldn't manage the figures properly.

    I tried it out myself, and they're right... if you drive it as a normal car then you get 45-50mpg tops, but if you actually work WITH the hybrid drivetrain you can get loads more. those weird "hypermilers" can get 90mpg+ out of them
     
  2. Twin Air is genius technology
     
  3. Saw the AD for this in the TV yesterday (Swedish tv)
    and it said

    +25% Power
    -15% Gas-thirst
    -15% Emissions


    Now im wondering how the people at Fiat was thinking when they didn't realise that if a gasoline-car uses 15% less fuel, it will automaticly emitt 15% less... Utter rubbish!


    So its engine isn't more environmentally friendly if you look at emissions per used fuel-unit!


    Although if the engine has 25% more power and -15% fuel-usage.. that is great :D!
