The public reaction to the cars was so overwhelmingly positive that GM is now seriously evaluating bringing a similar car to the US market. They know what needs to be done to make such a car meet US regulations and meeting future fuel economy standards would obviously not be an issue. The big problem is determining if there is enough market demand to justify the investment. Traditionally such small cars have never been strong sellers in America, but if fuel prices remain high and continue to climb the market will surely change.
