Week-end round-up

September 3, 2010 § Leave a comment

  • Lotus is going to show two range-extended hybrids at the Paris Motor Show: a four-door Porsche Panamera-style saloon and a two-door coupe. Both have the Omnivore 1.2-litre, three-cylinder engine acting as a generator to back up an electric powertrain, as in the Evora 414E Hybrid prototype. No pictures of either car as yet; this is what the multi-fuel Omnivore looks like mid-mounted in an Evora.
  • There’s been a call from a US consumer group to improve fuel economy to a corporate average of 60mpg (US) by 2025. The Consumer Federation of America, backed by the National Resources Defence Council, has issued a report and is pressuring Congress.
