    The Fiat 500 should serve as the symbol of the rebound effect. The original 500 had a 500 cc engine (hence the 500) that generated 23 horse power to move the car that weighted 600 kg. The new one is exactly twice as heavy, comes with minimum 1.4 l engine and has the same 5l/100km (42mpg) gas mileage. All the improvements in the efficiency of the gasoline engine went into making the car faster, more comfortable and crash resistant.
