Nissan Patrol Sales Up!

Figures released today show that large SUVs bucked the overall softening in the new-car market last month, with sales jumping by more than a third.

...Nissan Patrol sales doubled last month...

In contrast, sales of the fuel-sipping Toyota Prius hybrid - which uses roughly one-quarter the fuel of the petrol-powered LandCruiser - are down by more than half.
Buyers flock to thirsty 4WDs | sales figures

The people have spoken! :D

Cheers

If it is a 4wd it is a 4wd, if it is an 2wd large vehicle, then it is a SUV.

Interesting to see the Pryarse sales are dropping. I think everyone has had about enough of all the green band wagon BullChit.

Those things are about the most UN environmentally friendly things around and when you compare them to a lot of diesel cars, that aren't all that fantastic in their fuel consumption anyway.
And that's not even counting the disposal of the battery packs and other 'consumables'.

There also not Trucks ffs, yes Im old school. 4wd, 4X4 what ever there not a fn truck or suv lol.

Prius is the poster child of the gullibility of the masses. They save fuel yes, but sill take much more energy to build, run and recycle/dispose over their life than a much less fuel efficient conventional basic vehicle. Same with the silicon solar power con.
