Skip to comments.40 MPG Chevy Cruze Eco to Start at About $19,000 (ObamaCar)

When they unveiled their plans to build a 40 mpg Eco version of their upcoming Chevy Cruze at the New York Auto Show last April, GM claimed that the Cruze Eco would have the fuel economy of a hybrid at a much lower price. Today GM put an actual number on what a much lower price means: a starting price of $18,995 for the base Cruze Eco when it goes on sale later this year.
Whether that is really a much lower price than the hybrid competition is a whole nother thing entirely.

my saturn beats that, but it was made by the wrong union
How much government susbidy does it get?
of course its made by our taxpayer stimulus money to make it appear inexpensive.
20k for that little pos?
I’ll keep my 30+ mpg Firebird.
Just don’t swerve to miss a baby duck....
I’ll take ANY VW TDI and get high 40’s low 50’s with the manual transmission.
A) THe price looks doable
B) How stupid does this car look?
Actually it looks pretty normal, I think it could be a big seller.
I wonder how much Opel is in there?
I don’t understand why we don’t use more diesel technology.
I have a diesel pickup that dynos 450RWHP (after some mods), weighs 6,500 pounds, runs a 1/4 in 13 seconds and gets 25-26MPG (empty) on the highway.
There is no reason a 4 cylinder turbo diesel sedan couldn’t get 50-60MPG. You can make biodiesel from about anything from peanuts to algae poop.
Looks like your average car on the road to me.
You can get a Subaru wagon for about the same price ...
Seats 5, gets 26-28 mpg city/32-34 mpg highway, PLUS you have a lot of room for hauling stuff around ...
Subaru is the better deal ...
Ridiculous emissions standrads are killing diesel, hence us.
my ‘96 Passat TDI Wagon (46-50 Hwy, 40 City) will turn 300,000 miles in about 3 weeks. Big Party planned at my mechanic’s shop - we will apply flame decals to the car’s flanks while playing its theme song, “Born to Be Wild.”
Our “new” car, an ‘02 TDI Golf is just getting broken in at 137,000 miles, with similar fuel economy.
Now, if VW would only bring over a manual transmission TDI “CC” sedan.....
Looks like crap for 19k, if it cost 12k base price, I would consider it if it wasn’t made by Government Motors.
It’s not surprising that a conventional auto could have “hybrid like” numbers.
The whole “hybrid” gig is just a hoax. About like H1N1 or AGW.
