Well, I don't know about 25 year olds but my mid fifties wife just decided what she is driving in 3 or 4 years. I just came out of the shower to find this email in my inbox. Guess I'll be driving the Leaf for a while. Sigh

She makes a good point though. You can literally fill a fridge with beer, put it on a dolly. roll it up the built in ramp...and plug it in. Now thats facility.


Just sayin. [emoticon]

No one would bother to explain it to you. They just do with 250,000 pre-orders to-date.

And that's just good enough reason to have one[emoticon]

Did she offer that you can ride shotgun (at least)?

She is a retired soldier. She gets the shotgun. [emoticon]

Can't see myself dumping a half yard of sand, gravel or bark mulch in the back of one of those things. Might have a great cool factor but not to very practical as a pickup. Pickups look like they do and have flat bed rails for a reason.

Yah I can’t see her using it for sand or gravel either. But what would the height of the bed rails have to do with it.

She loves the fact it has a power tonneau cover. I get it. More useable lockable storage than any pickup.

Anyway. She is way down the list. I’m guessing three to four years before she sees it.

Half a yard?

That's only 3'x3'x18".
Could fit that in a lot of car trunks. Not saying the springs would hold though.

It isn't the height of the bedrails, its the angle. Bedrails on pickups are level for a reason. Canopies, campers, racks for snow machines, kayaks etc., plus all those things you see on contractor's trucks. Not that it will be used for fifth wheels but you could never use a truck with rails like that to haul one.

They will probably sell lots of them but not many will be used as actual trucks.

Yup it would depend on the weight. You could fill to the top with bark mulch or sawdust but not with wet sand or gravel.
