Ok, i got it. I was unaware of the jetcar 1.5. I heard about that car from metrompg, the 2.5 uses the same engine as the smart car.

Can you help me out. what does this mean "max. moment of force: 100 Nm (1500 – 2800) min-1 ".

I think that means a peak torque of 100 Nm from 1500 rpm to 2800 rpm.

Ok, this car is fairly basic. It has a 1.3L engine and is too small and too slow to make it to america. I wouldn't call it "super high mpg" either (just around the yaris/fit group, but slower).

Google does a good job of converting units from free-form input; it even inverts where necessary. The only flaw is that it thinks 'gallons' are those funny little American ones unless you say otherwise. Example: 295 miles per 7.4 gallons in liters per 100 km

I just found out that the Suzuki Twin does 0 to 100km (0-62) in 32.1 seconds!

They might need to boost the horespower a bit.

Those specs are almost exactly the same as an old diesel vw.
