    I really don't think the K27 would excite many people. I'm fairly easy to impress and it does nothing for me.

    Now when Musk unveiled the Cyber Truck, most guys had erections, and many of the girls was obviating.

    I agree, I've always prefered smaller hatchbacks. I don't really get this proclivity for Americans to purchase these relatively large CUVs or Pick-up trucks to drive as commuter vehicles. Makes no sense.

    We're waiting on the Model Y 7-seater to see if the 3rd row is actually usable, but we're specifically trying to go from the MX to the MY because I really prefer smaller vehicles. Unfortunately, having three boys that can't leave each other alone for more than 3 seconds makes it exceedingly difficult to find a smaller vehicle that will work for us.

    You are going to like the MY. The most driver comfort and best performance & handling I’ve experienced in any vehicle. The third row will likely be comfortable, and very functional to separate your 3 boys. :)

    "I don't really get this proclivity for Americans to purchase these relatively large CUVs or Pick-up trucks to drive as commuter vehicles. Makes no sense."

    Really due to preferred tax advantages of diesel being considered an "energy saver". Most of those pickups are diesels. Few smaller cars here are diesel. The other perception is that "bigger is safer", which was certainly true in the past, maybe not as much now. Lastly, as cars (and trucks) become more expensive, one vehicle has to be "all purpose", hence the shortbed dual cab models.

    Well, after a long silence, it looks like EMV is still determined to deliver this year! It's been no news on their China assembly plant, no new pictures of that facility churning out SOLOs and all of a sudden this news. It remains to be seen how many units will actually be delivered to "individual" reservation holders and not to companies like they did before. This is THE production final version with A/C, back up camera, center front light, power steering, etc. The SOLO is definitely a "WANT" 3wheeler. It's also questionable at this point how fast EMV can fulfill those eager reservation holders (me included) and what future lies ahead if demand for this single seater will remain strong.

    I'm #556 so too early to get excited yet. Let's see how this new info. plays out. We need new videos and pictures from their China plant rolling out SOLOs.
