    okay I know this is highly off topic and it’s okay if you delete it but I was looking at Escalades and I saw a black one and called it hot and my friend just bursts out in laughter and said “did you just call a car hot??” And she said that I’m the only person that calls a car hot. I just want to know if I’m the only one
    Thanks

    No, you are not the only one. Actually a pretty common term. It could have started from the term hot rod and crossed over to hot car. The origin of the term "hot rod" is unclear. For example, some claim that the term "hot" refers to the vehicle being stolen. Other origin stories include replacing the engine's camshaft or "rod" with a higher performance version. The term has broadened to apply to other items that are modified for a particular purpose, such as "hot-rodded amplifier".

    From an online urban dictionary:
    hot car
    When a driver of the opposite sex as the passenger calibrates the heat settings in an automobile to full heat output, and positions all blowers to point in the general direction of the passenger.

    Hot car is successfully reached when the occupant claims, "My skin is burning". Attempts by the passenger to re-calibrate heat settings to a more comfortable levelis met with a sturdy slap on the hand.
    "That bitch whined about being cold so I pulled a hot car on her."

    One or two prius with the 110v plug engine heaters have burned, I'd call them hot.
    One or two teslas have burned, I'd call them hot also.

    Yes. How old is your friend? Younger generations have the own "cool" lingo. About a decade ago, it was "sick". No idea what the cool kids are saying now.....

    Also, posting this question in the Prime forum was definitely click-bait! :ROFLMAO: :whistle:

    Haha! I know I’m sorry but I couldn’t find any other forum it would fit in and since in my opinion the Prius Prime is the best looking Prius it seemed to fit

    Ya...I own two Prii in TX and that's the closest I will ever get to calling them "hot".

    Certainly not about an Escalade! That's just a short, expensive school bus.
