Suzuki has launched a hybrid  gasoline/electric vehicle for sale on the Japanese market that travels an impressive 100 miles per gallon of gas!  The Suzuki Twin also features an automatic idling stop system shuts the engine down whenever the car stops at traffic lights or when stationary in heavy traffic, minimizing CO' emissions and fuel consumption.

Although popular in Japan, the mini-car market is less established elsewhere.  Mini-cars have never taken off in the United States, and while slightly more popular in Europe are still a very small segment of vehicle sales.

The Suzuki Twin hybrid vehicle is currently only produced for the domestic Japanese market.
