Fiat Strada with the 1.4L flexfuel engine, being effectively used as a work vehicle by a slaughterhouse specialized in lamb meat


It might fare as eco to some extent...

Notice the tow hitch in this Prius...



Early Yaris that I spotted in 2014 in Uruguay



I see fewer Fusion hybrids than I used to see before the facelift



The first US-spec Fit I've ever seen



Early Fiat 147 Pick-Up that I spotted in 2008 or 2009 in Porto Alegre, but nowadays AFAIK it's somewhere in Bahia

That tiny 147 is wild. reminds me of the Mira pick-up conversions we had running around before.

I have a military American Chevrolet but I do not know what model but you can see that it has a low resistance factor of 0.25 cd?

That's a Caprice. I grew up in the wagon version of that generation. Aerodynamic it might be, but it's heavy and has a big V8. Eco... NO.

Had it been actually comissioned by the military it wouldn't surprise me to see a Diesel under that hood. But anyway, AFAIK it's somewhat popular to perform LPG conversions on those landyachts in Europe, and in Ireland it's often pointed out to have grown in popularity due to Polish immigrants.

I guess many won't consider this W110 eco at all, but it's a Diesel


That 240D badge might be mismatching though, since the OM621 engine then used in Mercedes-Benz Diesel cars and light-duty commercial vehicles had only 1.9L, 2.0L and later a 2.2L version which was more usual in the Unimog

I have only seen a 2CV once in my life, probably 20 years ago in Toronto.
