Take that theoretical 45/55

Take that theoretical 45/55 EPA rating, apply some hypermiling and battery management techniques, maybe a magic incantation just for kicks...yeah, that would be nice. If the Insight can do 100mpg in the right hands a Fit ought to be able to do 75mpg+ as long as they don't screw with the drivetrain. Manual transmission and lean-burn would be required, though.

I think I'd take a Yaris

I think I'd take a Yaris over the Fit as well. However, I'd take the previous Echo hatchback over the Yaris if given the choice.

Then again, an Aveo, Wave, or Swift would be nice as well, but the mpg is a joke compared to the original Swift-clones.

there is no talk of a Fit

there is no talk of a Fit hybrid yet. It better include a 1 liter engine that has a powerful electric motor. It also better work on electric power up to 40mph.

A hybrid with an EPA average of 70 mpg?

(Or is that asking too much of the North American power-hungry mindset?)

I think it's asking too much. Like I mentioned in another thread I had to take my car up to 4000rpm just to keep up to some soccer moms.

Women won't admit it, but

Women won't admit it, but they're all lead-foot drivers...

I told my wife I want more mpg out of my car and she smiled like I was nuts and asked, "Why? You already get really good mileage."

Well...I couldn't argue...I am nuts and my mileage is good, but I want insanely good mileage and a Metro that's alive 20 years from now.

What do you mean there is no talk of a Fit Hybrid? It's has been talked about for about 6 months by Honda.
