How about a TSX diesel + IMA?    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-12-2005 17:53

What do you think the diesel mileage would be like? Performance? Maybe add a turbo to the diesel? This could be a fun and cost effective vehicle.....

After the diesel fuel gets upgraded here in the USA it would be really interesting to see this application launched in a sedan. I bet Honda would set records for fuel economy. It would also be nice to have the diesels torque. Thoughts?

This would be an interesting vehicle. Won't happen.

2.2 Euro Accord Diesel engine puts out 140HP & 340lbs/ft of torque, while getting better gas mileage than the 2nd Gen Prius.

Imagining a car with 160HP/370 lbs/ft peak getting 60MPG !

But, mating the Diesel to the Hybrid IMA would require some serious engineering.
