Hi,

If they use Imperial gallons, that yields a higher number. If they convert from L/km into US gallons/mile, then we'll get "accurate" numbers. Unless Toyota has done something to really help the FE, my guess is that the 56mpg and 57mpg numbers are the Imperial gallons; since the Smart car with a 1L engine, and 50 pounds lighter than the iQ gets ~45mpg in the US.

Hi,

Is there official confirmation of the iQ yet? (I hate the Detroit auto show website...)

Also, Toyota is saying there will be an EV version in 2012:

You guys are forgetting one key element here ... Scion is Toyota's youth brand, their goal is to attract a younger buyer market, not introduce fuel saving vehicles. So chances are unless it is marketed as the next "cool" thing, it woud just be introduced through Toyota, not Scion ...

That's very weird of Toyota.

Not unprecedented though. Try to find a 4 door hatchback Metro with a 5-speed. Available, but uncommon.

The Yaris 4-door HB comes with an auto tranny. The 5 speed manual is an option. So there are five speed manual HB being released, just how many is the question.

Hiya,

There is still no word on the iQ coming to the USA, is there? I found an iQ fan site, btw, and it is a quiet place...
