(Jim Stone) You won’t find the 300 MPG Volkswagen XL1 in an American showroom, in fact it has even been denied a tour of America because it is too efficient for the American public to be made widely aware of, and oil profits are too high in America with the status quo in place.

Wow! That is incredible. And it is ironic that people are complaining about how our vehicles are releasing all these greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the atmosphere, yet truly clean technologies like this are being suppressed. And stuff like this would certainly alleviate the smog problems in many major cities around the world.

true that all creation
one would think that tecnology such as this would be a mandatory thing
just rough mathing it in my head,its 6 times better than what we are rolling with
it would make the trucking transport 6 times more efficient as far as shipping goods
stuff would get dramatically cheaper
stuff like food

the wrong folks are calling the shots

False - http://www.snopes.com/politics/conspiracy/xl1.asp

April 2014 saw the emergence of yet another entry in this vein, courtesy of Jim Stone, Freelance Journalist (the same "journalist" who promulgated the ridiculous story about a passenger on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 who supposedly hid his cell phone in his rectum and used it to post a picture to the Internet after the flight was hijacked), positing that Volkswagen has a terrific 300 MPG vehicle that only costs $60,000 all ready to go, but it can't be sold (or even seen) in America because politicians in the pay of oil companies are conspiring to keep it unknown and unsellable in the U.S.:

First of all, it's not true that the XL1 has "been denied a tour of America because it is too efficient for the American public to be made widely aware of." Existing safety and traffic regulations do limit where the current XL1 models can be legally driven in public roads in the U.S., but Volkswagen has taken at least three of the vehicles on tour around the U.S., and the staff of Jalopnik drove one around Manhattan at the end of 2013.

Second, the primary reason the XL1 won't be seen in the U.S. anytime soon is that Volkswagen is only producing 200 units for retail sale (not 2,000 as claimed above), all of them to be sold in Europe via some sort of selection (i.e., lottery) process.

the journalist or the politics are really irrelevent
fuel efficient vehicals that have been around for a dozen or so years,thats more the point
kids dont wear seatbelts in buses
rules and regulations are holding back tecnology and oil and government are the ones pulling crap out of there butts,hindering our tecnological advancement

http://business.time.com/2012/10/17/ult ... o-the-u-s/

as far as the volkswagon,banned or unaffordable to 99 percent of the public is sort of the same result

electric cars have been around for over 100 years
oil hasnt held that tecnology back but something is definetly going on there

http://www.kuriositas.com/2010/07/when- ... ented.html

houses cost 700-1000 buck then
those cars were two or three times more

anyways,the reason i posted the artical,true or false or misleading,is there are cars out there that are 6 times more efficient than what we are using
when will we use them

A journalist making up a lie is the entire point of this thread.

Efficient cars are great - but this one isn't around yet, and it has nothing to do with oil or regulations.
