Comments: Cars by Citroën: Robots in disguise

I thought Europeans were supposed to be for less fuel consumption?

I'll bet that thing has dismal gas mileage.

It looks like one of those Pontiac hatchbacks. With Europeans being so damned smarmy about their record on the environment, I'd think that anything that meets their standards would meet ours. I never understood why you couldn't buy whatever automobile you wanted and bring it here. I know there are emission standards, but it seems like any new car would easily meet them...

I wonder how much to import one? Although i'm not much into supporting the French this year...

Citroen is probably majority-owned by one of the Big Three. I'll try to Google it and find out. Sort of like Jaguar is owned (wholly or mostly) by Ford...which explains why their high-dollar cars look almost exactly like the mediocre automobiles that Ford produces.
