Luxury Sport Sedan Hybrids--or even "green"
I have a 328i and i basically want a car with its attributes ( handling, power, driving pleasure, accouterments ), but with better fuel economy. I can periodically squeeze out 35MPG on the highway, and i think it's absurd that as a country we are moving backward on fuel economy. I do think this is eminently possible to achieve. A prius can get 55mpg, and hybrids don't have as much of a penalty for increasing weight and power as a non-hybrid vehicle.
I sent a e-mail to BMW public relations, and they replied that they are not considering hybrids at all at this point, and they did not answer my concerns concerning their fleet fuel economy-right now, they as a corporation pay penalties for not meeting CAFE, and i therefore find it hard to justify buying one one their cars, however much i like them.
So, I wondered if anyone has information concerning "green" luxury cars, and i would be interested in hearing others opinions on the topic.
