Want an oil-burning little box? Europeans can. They are able to get the boxy Nissan Cube with a Renault-sourced 110 hp 1.5 liter diesel engine, thanks to the underpinnings that are related to the Nissan Micra and the Renault Clio. The engine is only Euro-IV compliant, but regulations in Germany are pushing the the company to introduce a new 1.5-liter diesel Euro-V compliant engine for next October. The best news comes at the pump: the current diesel Cube burns 5.2 l/100 km in the Euro mixed cycle, which is about 45 miles per gallon U.S., although it goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 miles per hour) in 11.9 seconds. Europeans can also get an already Euro-V-compliant 1.6-liter gasoline model, which can be mated to CVT transmission.

        If you are talking about the nissan cube then you can get it in the US. Is just that you cant get it with the diesel engine since the stereotype US buyer hates diesel and think diesel is smelly and slow which is sooooo wrong.

      This would make a great EV. Lots of carrying space and cute too.

        Nissan has been showing off their electric Cube prototype for a while. But I think it evolved into the Leaf.
