I'm getting a sense now, having read the POVs of folks outside the US, that the marginal price variance we see, and the regulatory environment we face, are unique to the US. Outside the US, and in Europe it seems that the taxes and fees that come with buying the larger engined car aren't remotely worth it for most folks. And based on the numbers I've seen cited above, I would tend to feel the same way. We US buyers don't have the steep tax burdens t and we don't have the emissions-related surcharges/fees/sin taxes.
