This isn't officially listed yet, but I got word today because I did the application ;)

Welcome to your future when fuel hits $2 a litre - if you're like me, you'll be driving one of these around for a daily, and keeping your Skylines for the weekends. 1.4 or 1.5 litre, auto only or CVT, a few interesting optional features like hybrid AWD, as well as a 7 seat option called the Cube Cubic. Probably in the mid teens landed and complied once plates are through. I love them!

As soon as they're available, let me know and I'll grab one.

I LOVE these cars and always wished they'd be available.

VE SS daily driver is bad on petrol and not nearly as cool as a CUBE!

Mixed cycle for fuel consumption was 6.3l/100km for the 1.4 model, not sure about the 1.5 and CVT version. They only weigh 1140kg.

Price range, I imagine they'll be somewhere in the mid-high teens landed and complied when they are finally through. They would make an awesome daily driver, hence why I wanted to get them on the list - Cube for fanging around town during the week, Skyline/any other heavy fuel drinker as a weekend car.

Not sold on that seat colour and how it matches (or doesn't...) with the exterior colour, but they will be a hit once they hit the roads, no doubt about it.
