Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

The Chinese are getting an S60L, extended length, with a hybred drivetrain and reportedly 117MPG. Now, I realize that is probably Imperial gallons, but if the car were introduced to the Europe and USA markets, it would put the other manufacturers to shame!! Pluse, what a marketing boost!

Along with 240 bhp and 250 lbs of torque, that sounds like a winner. With the 2015 engines already here, why not add the electric rear drive? Or is that a no-no for the NJ group? I am sure the Europeans would love a diesel version as much as we would love a solid car that gets close to 100mpg. Heck, you could reduce the size of the gasoline tank to 10 gallons to offset the weight of the NiCad batteries.
