      Yeah, and the weight of that behemoth means a tiny fender bender accident will do massive damage to everything involved. Wouldn’t be surprised if you could total itself with a 10mph impact.

      E: spelling

      It’s an Escalade, half the appeal is for idiots who want the largest possible vehicle

      Thank you! Me too! I would love a decent market of subcompacts to choose from but it’s so barren in the US and imports are $$$$$.

      I can’t believe they discontinued the Smart Car and there wasn’t another successor ready to take over its share of consumers.

      How else am I going to get my family and my fat ass to Costco to get all my bulk foods and a pizza on my way out the door to save me multiple trips to different stores? Duh.

      There are ups and downs. If the size gives increased passenger capacity that can be the difference between needing one or two vehicles for a trip.

      Big vehicles means more weight though, which means bigger batteries to get range at even more weight. The Hummer EV for example weighs 4.5t with 1400kg of that being battery. That means extra wear on tires (as well at reinforced sidewalls), roads, and additional considerations for parking garages or bridges etc
