Hello to you,
well, that is a great Promise (31mpg = 8,2 Liters per 100km) with a 300 Horse Power Car without Diesel Engine. I don't believe in it, even with a 8-speed-automatic. The Cars need a Diet...
Currently we have got cars with Diesel-Engines around 250 HP burning 7 Liters per 100km in the Norm Test Cycle, but not on the Street. I think, S.Marchionne, is speaking about Norm Test Cycle and nothing has been told from him about the Motor itself. So let's wait what really happens.
But the Direction is clear and in my Opinion the correct Way: Enough Power with less Need of Ressources.
8,4L/100km = 30,1 mpg Diesel
