A F30 320d ED is too small and too light?

A UK Prius is rated 3.9l/100km or 72mpg-Imperial. A BMW F20 1 Series uses slightly less fuel. An F30 320d uses slightly more than a Prius.

Besides what is wrong with a light car? A light car is a fast car.

For the US, diesels are a distraction as well. We should be investing in recharge infrastructure not bifurcated diesel and petrol fuels supply.

But there is a diesel distribution system already in place. If there was more demand for diesel, more retailers would carry it. Even the current distribution network is more than adequate. When I lived in the US I don't think I ever lived more than 10 miles from a station that pumped diesel.

Don't take this wrong. I'm an EV supporter. You may have noticed I'm planning to be an early adopter.
