Ford thinks 65mpg car won't sell in U.S.

The 65mpg Ford ECOnetic will go on sale in November, but not in the U.S. Why? Because Ford thinks a diesel model does not make business sense in this country. At a net price of $24,400 (after $1300 tax deduction), the vehicle is about the same price as a Toyota Prius.
The specs on the EcoNetic are 51mpg city, 74 mpg highway. It uses a 1.6L TCDi diesel. CO2 Emissions are 98g/km (better than a Prius).
