Why is this not available in Canada?
Recently I read that Suzuki has launched a hybrid powered gas/electric vehicle for sale on the Japanese market that travels an impressive 34 kilometres for every litre of fuel used!
Called the Suzuki Twin, it also features an automatic idling stop system to shut the engine down whenever the car stops at traffic lights or when stationary in heavy traffic, minimizing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.
Apparently the Suzuki Twin hybrid vehicle is currently only sold in the domestic Japanese market. Too bad.
I find this car is far more interesting than the new Chevrolet Volt.
