$60 large for an economy car?

Sounds like a recipe for Chevy Volt-like sales volume.

Yeah - that's super expensive.

I don't think EPA will allow anything diesel.

Less, actually... only about 200 will be built & sold. And I think the price is more like $150K.

its not the EPA as it is California and the states that have adopted California emissions.

California in the past had banned all diesel cars regardless of their emissions. The only reason they are selling them now is the EPA under the Bush admin refused to approve their new regs for gas powered cars unless they they set no more stringent standards for diesels. I doubt this administration will prevent ludicrous zealots from setting arbitrary and ridiculous rules.
