That’s your opinion but still lead the nation. Other automakers would love to have a pickup like the Big3 have.

Agree on pickups, but that's where the story ends.

Doubt it.


Look at cars that were sold 10 years ago. Other than the fancy infotainment center, one could assume they could be manufactured and sold today.

This seems more like public transportation, there is no way I would willingly, sign up and pay for that type of vehicle.

My knee jerk reaction is to say that these predictions are never correct. However, I think the CONCEPT has merit, although I agree that people often want THEIR OWN SPACE, and are selfish about it. There may be self driving cars in the future, but don't expect people to willingly share the ride with others.

I've seen too many PopSci, PopMech, Discovery, Omni and MechIllo covers over the decades to even bother to look at the link.

Not to mention the ever-expanding universe of their less reputable, far loopier online brethren.
