If it defies reason and public interest, then why is the public
voting, with their pocketbooks, against such regulated vehicles,
and for SUVs?  If there's anything sad here, it's government's
insistance on over-regulating the automotive industry to the point
that innovative, small companies like MG can't afford to enter
the US market.
