Green waves

Many sites have picked up on iQ’s appearance at the Paris Motor Show, and others on its confirmed launch options.

Now the engine and emissions details are published, there’s renewed interest within the green community, too.

Treehugger picks up on iQ’s gear shift indicator – it helps drivers change up early to save fuel. Like many others, the site wonders if iQ is destined for US shores.

Ecogeek gets excited about the indicator, too. It says the simple system could help drivers use as much as 3% less fuel.

Meanwhile, over at the CleanMPG community, people are commenting on yesterday’s Wall Street Journal article.

“If that came to Canada,” muses one contributor, “my wife [would] have to threaten me often to remind me why we can’t trade in our Yaris for one.”
