And there's a new diesel engine coming out.
Honda's 1.6 litre i-DTEC turbo diesel giving
  • 120 PS (118 bhp) @ 4,000 rpm and
  • 300 Nm (221 ft-lb) of torque @ 2,000 rpm.

Fuel injection from Bosch at 1800bar.
Fuel economy on their new car should go from 67 mpg to 78 mpg.

Lose the Eagle 4.2l, transmission & transfer-case, add an electric at each front wheel and the rear drive shaft, drive them from this diesel, should still be a weight savings too. New motor control circuits detect rpm while providing driving current, so coordinating torque between the three electric motors should be fairly easy.
