    dont abandon the large cars too. it will be a huge mistake to think that most people will ignore that segment. not everyone will want to be driving in some micro-car.

    It's a myth to claim that front-drive cars are more efficient, or more weight effective, else why is the Olds Toronado not around all these years.
    The truth is, FWD is simply more convenient for the plants because the entire engine/transmission/drive are in the one assembly package with the front suspension kit.
    Ask yourself why, even to this day, giants like Toyota have stuck with the RWD layout on all their bigger commercials, and Mercedez Benz even moved their Van from FWD back to RWD
