Vince,

To me, I think it's not off the base, but it's a fact, and is the trend in automotive world. VW has, and still brining desiel powered Jetta/Beetle in US/Canada. And I can tell you that Beetle TDI drives like a gasoline, feels like a gasoline car, and almost smoke free.....If VW can do it, why can't MB???

However, 1 point that I am 110% with you, is that car makers will move their attention to hybrid/combine power cars(like Honday Insight)....and I believe it will be as populour as Toyota Echo in the next 5 years or so...
