    How do you plan on backing up when you can't see anything from having to blindside from both sides...
    Center seat has to be the all out worst way to go about laying out a cab that is designed to pyull vans.

    With a flat, or in equipment where one can see it would be fine, but where there is this huge wall blocking the view....

    If you look at the pics it has no mirrors. Just cameras.

    I love the, what if it breaks down crowd. There's like eight moving parts. The only way to break down is if it runs out of power

    Tell that to the electrical cables that'll rub through and short out or the motors when the windings short out or armature bearings seize up. The motors also genetate a ton of heat. I'd like to see how long they'll last on a hard, slow pull in the middle of summer. I've seen a fair few large electric motors blow up and its not pretty.
     
    peterd and Oldironfan Thank this.

    You're absolutely right! You better write a letter to Tesla and tell them they're wasting their time because they can't stop wires from rubbing through or keep electric motors cool.
     
    Jmans and Tb0n3 Thank this.
