YEP… Another GM 60 MPG Vehicle We Don’t Have…Yet

Posted on June 13, 2008. Filed under: HybridHype |

What’s faster than standard Harley and Prius, seats four and get better fuel economy than both? GM won’t tell you…
In 2007 GM showed off its new Opel Corsa diesel for buyers wanting more economy, using the 1.7-litre CDTi with 125PS. As you’d expect from a car wearing the SRi badge, it offers impressive performance, accelerating from 0-60mph in 9.3 seconds, going on to a top speed of 121 mph and yet achieves an average of 58.9 mpg.
 
GM even sells a “economy version” that exceeds 64 mpg !!!
Available in 3-door and 5-door variants, the Corsa GSi gets sporty bodywork, an attractive set of 17″ five-spoke wheels, and two-tone seats. It goes on sale in Europe this September. We’ll have to wait for the next-gen Corsa to arrive, which will be sold here as a Saturn.
