You can buy it in Europe? Where? I'd love to get my hands on a wrecked drivetrain...

Most of the pics of diesel hybrids I've seen have been concepts or one-offs. I didn't know any were being mass produced.

This one is a different choice of managing the mechanical connection between the ICE, road, and elec motor seem over engineered. It's just a clutchless gear-dog connection with electronic match-speed engine control. Not new materials, but I thought it was a more elegant alternative to things like the dual-elec-motor/clutched-planetary/cvt/gearbox of the prius. Maybe some of us GSers might be able to adapt them to a project. But maybe not.

Don't let my naive interest in a new design interrupt anyone's apathy. I have my moments too.

The ecopower is crap, when I read about it when it was coming out, way back when, it only was projected to have a 15% fe advantage over the tdi. Meh.

That's why I thought this Dyna was so novel, I'm pretty sure it's being produced.

Yeah, I'm guessing that's why they went with weight reduction/better aero for the 3L Lupo... Probably cheaper too. A shame they don't offer some instantaneous mpg feedback with a normal MT.
