Will The Americans Embrace The Small Cars? What About You?

For many years now, Americans have had the option to turn to small, fuel-efficient cars. Surprisingly every time the option came close, they hated what they got.

You don’t even need to think far. How about the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo? Do any of you remmeber it? The shortage of fuel and fist fights at gas stations scared U.S. drivers to considering small cars like the Ford Pinto, Chevrolet Chevette, Dodge Colt, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and the Plymouth Cricket.

Eventually to no one’s surprise fuel was available at a much cheaper price once again and the US soon got back to the old standard V-8 powered cars and trucks. If one looks into the money aspect of it, the bigger and traditional American vehicles made much more sense to them.

Well it looks like this time (the Fiat 500 just made it’s first appearance in the US) things are going to change from the roots, as Ford Motor Company along with the likes of General Motors have got their collective engineering and manufacturing acts together to give the Americans a small car worth owning. What’s going to happen this time? What’s your guess? And would you go for a small car just for saving on fuel?
