    Two diesel SUVs (GLE350d and Range Rover HSE Td6). Don’t see diesel cars very often here. Usually they’re VWs or BMW 3 series.

    They really don't like using the H word with some brands The US site doesn't even list an electric motor in the specs.
    R/T is the PHEV.

    Electrification is politically incorrect for Crysler-Corp because they see it as too politically correct... Look at the 10 minute heave fest of a commercial they made for the new electrified Charger...

    2006-2009 Suzuki Every Wagon in really good condition; as if it was sold here. (I stop at 2009 because of our 15-year limit so if it was brought in this year, it can’t be newer than 2009)

    EV6 GT

    There is a little classic EV van I see in driveway nearly everyday; likely a low speed one. No clue what it is. The headlights stand up from the short 'hood' like a Citicar's, but the body profile is round surfaces vs flat. Even the roof is strongly curved.
