Not to worry.....

This is a new concept in hybrid vehicles. It uses compressed air to supplement the gas engine. When the spoiler at the rear is pushed downward it collapses the YELLOW BELLOWS and creates a chamber of compressed air. After the pressure is spent the driver knows it because he can't see out the back window anymore, and so he gets out and pushes downward on the spoiler again.......and so it goes.

It's sure to be a big hit with the earth-friendly crowd.

So it's a compressed air hybrid. Never heard of that before. Nothing wrong with selling chinese cars in Japan. japanese cars have been selling in China for 15-20 years now.

But it's not all about only looking... According to the news, it costs about 3,000,000 Japanese Yen in china. Look.. these car will be even cheaper than this DFM's car in Japan...

http://www.honda.co.jp/auto-lineup/i...ype/index.html

Integra type R costs 2,730,000 Jp yen

http://toyota.jp/mr-s/grade/grade/index.html

MR-s V edition 2,289,000 jp yen.

Well, when I read this from korean yahoo, it said it's 10% cheaper than its class in Japan. I don't know what car they were comparing to. Perhaps, skyline(is this car RWD?)? hmm...

Anyway, what I want to say... it's not small money for japanese as well and I don't think they would expect only experior aspect....

hybrid? The news was saying the car use 2~3ltr Mitz engine... Then, I think we can't expect a good fc with this size of engine compare to other hybrid.
So, is it designed to provide the power of v8 at V6 fc or V6 at v4 fc?

But Japanese buyers are very reluctant to buy foreign cars (except luxury vehicles), Hyundai only sold 3,000 units last year. Plus, the car looks very Korean (not that thats a bad thing, though designwise, it can be) and is kind of overdone.

Yeah, it's true... and it's not only in auto industry... Samsung and LG are not doing well over there as well. Actually, they don't pay much attention to Japan as it's the toughest market to foreign comapnies. And it's quite funny while honda have become one of the favorite car maker in other countries, they are not doing well in Japan. It seems like thier brand name is not well treated as in oversea. The market in Japan is quite interesting....

Anyway, you said the car looks very korean.... Are u refering to Hyundai Coupe(http://car.donga.com/board/board.php...16&s_work=view)?

The "hybrid" post is a joke guys... peeps r dense round here...

This car is too funky to sell in large numbers anywhere in the world. But given they're only shooting for 2000 a year in Japan, and with Japanese' tendency to buy weird stuff, it's not a bad idea.

Think of it this way, if you're gonna sell 2000 of a certain car in Japan, what would you sell? Yet another bland sedan or van? Something funky is the way to go.

My only question is its performance and build quality - are they up to par?

agreed. And if they want to play in Japan, they'd better have good quality too.
