    In that video I noticed he mentioned trying one out offroad in CO, so I went and watched that too: https://youtu.be/KGqexebCcUo

    Pretty disappointing that they didn't really mention much about off-roading, such as range, but instead mostly just talked about the truck's gizmos just like the other video. Even the off-roading didn't look particularly impressive, they mention huge boulders when really that looked like an easy trail - anyone recognize it? If anything I was unimpressed with the performance we do see since you just see the independent suspension flopping around.

    That said, it is still probably more capable than most rigs I've driven and it seems neat and I kind of want one - if only I had somewhere to charge an EV and could afford one anyway 😬

    I just hope eventually someone makes an EV the size of my Jimny (Suzuki certainly will but our import laws won't let me have it), or that conversions are feasible.

    Trail in that video is North Fork of the Swan River and Deer Creek / St. Johns, beautiful area.

    Check out all the EVs, and that's not even all that are available now. Big surprise @ 33:30ish

    Cool little car, though that's unfortunate how it only has 57 miles of range.

    I wonder if all electric cars are doomed to either be large or have little range - the physics must lean towards having a bigger battery for more range as opposed to just being smaller and having less weight otherwise. I guess that makes sense given how heavy batteries are. My wish for a Jimny-sized EV SUV doesn't seem too hopeful.
