    Your assertion is that they stopped making models that were successful in order to force people to buy models that would otherwise not be popular?

    You know this sounds crazy, right?

      US vehicle size is currently driven by broken EPA rules regarding emissions per wheelbase which strongly encourages larger vehicles. It seems to be affecting EVs as well, but not sure why.

      The forced people to buy models that could pass emissions regulations easier, which meant less r&d for few models that didn’t get much change, and they happened to be able to charge more due to size as well. Win/win/win for everyone other than all the dead kids that got ran over because Karen’s and Kyle’s can’t see past the football field of a hood and the grill is 5.5 feet tall
