Default Toyota taking orders & iQ to get stop/start technology and 1.4L diesel

Quote:
Toyota is already taking orders for its new iQ minicar with deliveries to begin as early as January 2009. At launch, the iQ will be offered with a 1.0L VVT-i petrol engine that produces 67-hp and a peak torque of 67 lb-ft. Mated to either a 5-speed manual or Toyota’s new Multidrive CVT system, the iQ is capable of returning a fuel-economy of 55 mpg.
Toyota has already confirmed that a new 1.33L Dual VVT-i petrol engine with stop/start technology will also joining the iQ lineup in 2009. A 1.4L diesel unit will also be offered in select European markets, reducing fuel-consumption.
We’ve previously heard that Toyota is also working on a plug-in hybrid version of the iQ. The model is expected to 15 miles on electric-power alone.

This is wonderful news..... if you live in Europe. What of course would be even better news, is if Toyota allowed us to put a deposit down on one (or more), over here. Come on Toyota! If Smart can be in a position where they can't make enough of a vastly inferior product, with a two year waiting list, the iQ would sell BETTER than hot cakes....
