Oh, sure. And you
cancould also buy a Smart car.... How many of those do you see around? None. Because the stopped selling them in the USA... Again... Social issues in the USA are for larger and larger cars.... Also a growing trend here in Europe. Huge SUVs.... being driven with one person inside. Waste of energy. Does not matter how good the engine is, or the type of motor. Simple waste of energy. I wonder if anyone has done the full math and environmental analysis... Better for one person to drive a motorcycle with an ICE or a large Electric SUV?
I see a lot more Smart Cars now than I did ten years ago. SUV's are certainly commonplace though. But it isn't as if smaller cars aren't available. The image originally referred to would make one think that car makers no longer offer a reasonably sized two door sedan; when, in fact, there are many available at many price points. It is us, the consumers, that are driving that trend. But's it's much easier to blame the car makers for our buying preferences.
