Don't do that! Otherwise you will post photos of most of your cars!

I'd share the ones that are notable in your context.

first

Spotted my first Sienna hybrid yesterday. I heard it (decelerating) before I saw it.



Not my pic! I wasn't walking along somewhere in the southwestern (?) US.

Rumour has it they're going to do a plug-in hybrid version of it, likely with the RAV4 drivetrain.

I usually go for hybrids, small econoboxes which were somewhat economical even from a more European-alligned perspective, or some older dedicated-ethanol stuff I still see once in a while. But anyway, nowadays there is either a higher standard to what could be seen as fuel-efficient, or people are just in the verge of bankruptcy and seeing anything other than a small-displacement motorcycle as a gas-guzzler.

Considering not only the fuel-efficiency, but also the lower cost compared to its European counterpart due to the usage of much of the underpinnings from the Fiat 127, the Fiat Uno Mille may qualify as eco enough.

Renault Kwid, a project originally catering to India which was brought to Brazil too in order to serve as a replacement for the 2nd-gen Clio as the entry-level offer in the region. Surprisingly, it's actually classified as a mini SUV for fuel-economy certification.

first Mach-e


(Not the actual one I saw)

I saw my first "Mustang" Mach-e in town today. From what I've read, the main criticism of the car vs. Tesla seems to be the lack of Tesla's charging speed & charging network. Otherwise, a capable, competitive EV.

Seen a blue one. I hear compared to tesla, they are gutless and only handle in a straight line. Hmmm. Kinda like a 65 1/5 mustang.

Proportions resemble a Volvo XC40 until the last pillar.
