Tokyo Motor Show 2005: Alternative fuel concepts
Slide 6 of 20
Although not seen in the United States for quite a while, Daihatsu is strong in the Asian market. The HVS is a hybrid roadster, emphasizing performance and fuel economy with two motors, regenerative braking, and a 1.5-liter engine. This system gets it more than 80mpg. Given its well-appointed cockpit, it's a shame that it probably won't make it to the U.S. market.
Production version: Very likely, but not in the States.
