Here's a topic I haven't seen discussed yet...unless I missed it. The speedometer has a top speed of 120 mph. Will the IQ actually reach that speed? Seems unlikely with the 1.3 engine.

Mine is not broken in yet so I don't want to push it but I did try a little speed and I could hear the engine working hard at about 75 on the fwy on a straightway. It'll go 120 hitched to a car that s going 120

Last August i was driving my iQ DIESEL very, very fast!
In Germany we have unlimited speed, but ONLY on (most) Autobahn-parts.
Outside town the speed limit is 100km/h.

The radarphotos shows (me and my iQ) just leaving the picture - the speed was exactly 200km/h.
This is the max speed on plain surface/road.
Downhill I can reach around 215km/h, but only if you have a speed DELIMITER on board, because all iQ (in Europe) have a electronic "stop" if you reach 170km/h (the wheel are not for higher speed too). Car Tire Vehicle Wheel Land vehicle
