No Apple fan here, but... What if Apple would presents something like the Renault Twizy? Using the Apple's "cool factor" to promote a new kind of mobility could be an interesting phenomenon. A small, light, electric quasi-car, that could me more than enough for a lot of commuters.

People just need to learn to drive efficiently, if they want to consume less. You can't expect to just buy a Prius, drive like a mad man and burn like the EPA numbers. But, if you drive with a grain of salt, you CAN even exceed EPA numbers. A lot of hybrid drivers do that. In addition EPA numbers are just the results for a standardized set of tests, with some additional corrective factors. Depending on where you live, how's your commute, etc., you situation may approach more or less that scenario.
