2000 Citrus manual Insight
Interesting that the article is about the future of the Insight, yet there is a picture of the IMAS which they don't even mention.

Einstein was not always right - there could be a loophole. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcubierre_drive )sputnik said:Coffee Mug #1 : SPEED LIMIT 186,000 Miles per Second. It's Not Just A Good Idea, IT'S THE LAW!
Re. Carbon Fiber automotive shells, "super efficent diesel"s, efficent lithum ion batteries and "efficent solar panels" all installed on a given mass produced vehicle, while this is currently a dream, reality in that regard may be a lot closer than most currently suspect.... Imagine what a super efficent diesel insight, with 100% carbon fiber body, super efficient drag coefficeint of .1, drive by wire regen braking, and 25% efficent solar panels on the roof and hood could do!
... Now imagine a super efficent diesel engine that allows the engine size to be dropped to a mere .25 liters and more efficent lithium ion 2 batteries, which will be out by 2010.
... Then imagine what being able to plug in the Insight could do, with lithium 2 batteries allowing 150 miles EV only crusing, and solar cells recharging 50 miles while you're at work.
... Any thoughts?
