Where is the Powershift? Where are the DrivE (what a lame name, by the way) Diesels or at least the gas powered equivalents? Where is the US Spec D5? Even with gas back to "normal", I can tell you that customers consistently look at the fuel economy numbers, shake their heads and express disappointment and dismay at the brand - then head off to look for something PC to drive. <p>I'm not interested in hearing about how you can recycle the cars or the cradle to the grave carbon footprint. Customers don't care. Customers don't want to hear that the Prius is a fraud or that the grid won't support plug-ins. They don't want to hear that it will take 5 years or 3 years or 10 years or whatever for the hybrid to "pay for itself". They don't want to hear that Ethanol is worse for the environment than gas and has a net negative energy factor. They don't want to hear that they rainforest is being torn down to plant soybeans for the "bio" in Bio-Diesel. They just want to feel better about themselves based on the badge on the back of their car. Volvo customers have money and morals - and when it comes to keeping up with the joneses - right now that means in a green way. <p>I know there are people here that have information that they can't "officially" share. That said, some hints and when some of this helpful VOLVO technology will arrive stateside would sure be nice.<p>Any cryptic good news would be appreciated.
