    This is more of the kind of vehicle I want to see. Roof height low enough the average person car see right over, narrow enough to fit comfortably in a parking space, and the same length as an F-150 with the box chopped off.

      Same. It’s weird how compact crossover SUVs are quickly becoming the popular choice for people, yet EVs are either sedans or trucks. Only Hyundai/Kia really makes EV models that are just right in size. Rivian is coming out soon with their compact EVs, but those are still gonna be expensive

        Certainly strikes me how years ago a certain company was constantly touting the electric vehicle platform they made could have basically any shape of car you want on it, and how that went out the window not too long after.

        If I were in the market, I would be trying to get my hands on a Microlino. Though I’d probably settle for a Fiat 500 or similar. I do wish there were more competition in that space though. If only the automakers weren’t so driven by profit.

        I think it’s a combination of incentives, tariffs, and market research that claims that Americans prefer big expensive SUVs. I’m sad about it though
