In this week’s Request Nathan:

  • Will we at any time see an EV Jeep pickup?
  • Do the O-2-O cross state trip in a gasoline motor vehicle now!
  • Are applied automobile price ranges falling?

The first concern arrives from a enthusiast who wonders if Nissan would make it possible for a PHEV Mitsubishi pickup to be marketed in our marketplace.

Visuals: Jeep

Q: (Via: [email protected]) Any information about Stellantis developing an EV Jeep pickup of some type?

If they are making an EV Wrangler, why can not they establish an EV Jeep pickup based mostly on the EV Wrangler? Little pickups are scorching and no a single has a low-priced, little EV pickup nevertheless. So why not Jeep?

— Nameless

A: You make a good level, but I consider an EV Jeep pickup is a ways off.

However, there are rumors about the likelihood of the small Jeep Avenger EV coming to the United states in a different variety. If you bear in mind a when back, Jeep confirmed the entire world the Comanche pickup idea. We had been fortunate adequate to travel it, and numerous people today ended up demonstrating real curiosity. Most likely that’s something Jeep has kept in thoughts. Not only that, but Stellantis is thoroughly conscious about how well-known the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz are.

Even though a little electric powered pickup appears to be like a fantastic notion to you and me, it’s a daunting process for automakers. Contemplating what buyers assume of present day day pickup vans, developing a small 1 that underperformed in any way, could possibly sink the ship. I could be erroneous, but I suspect that’s why we’re only viewing big, costly EV pickups. They are much easier to package, and preserve the buyers relatively content with their performance.

I hope you are suitable about an EV Jeep pickup. It could be epic!

This future issue arrives from a fan who needs us to repeat our cross place vacation – in an internal combustion motor vehicle.

Q: (By using Twitter@NathanAdlen) Hey men. I do not indicate to be a full troll, but I have an problem with your cross place trip in the Hyundai.

I considered it was a truly cool video, and I’m seeking forward to the subsequent just one, but you left some thing very vital out. You should’ve set up how prolonged it will take to get from those two fountains in a gasoline car. With no that review the other element to, it does not appear to be as interesting. Possibly that is one thing you are likely to do later on?

I really like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and I consider it is a excellent car or truck for cities. You’ve established that it can be driven across country in a way that is not much too poor. I figure if you determine to consider it back throughout place with a household, you will have to make 2 times as quite a few stops. That appears to be rational doesn’t it?

In any case, I imagine you men are the most difficult performing journalist on YouTube. I genuinely like all of your articles and all of your channels. My wife and I can not stand the fakes out there who definitely shell out for viewership. I also despise Subaru for not supplying you autos. That is about the stupidest point I have ever read of. Whoever is in cost of their public relations really should be fired right away! I signify, you guys dwell in the Rocky Mountains for crying out loud! The one motor vehicle you men ought to be tests as a Subaru! Anyway, that’s plenty of of my rant. Just take treatment and have a secure winter season! at?v=IDqmSU8RmCI

A: Terrific problem!

Yes, we talked about it quite a little bit, and I am eager on undertaking this complete run in unique vehicles. If this does take place, we will be wanting for a single of the far more fuel effective automobiles out there. An overall economy vehicle that can common more than 40 mpg at pace would be excellent, and there are nevertheless a handful of to select from.

You can read through about my solo return trip (here).

The only problem for us is the assets desired to do this all over again. Try to remember: we’re a small studio – with only a handful of persons accessible at any specified time. This form of journey needs a whole lot of organizing, fees and time for 3 of us to be absent from the studio for a even though. Nonetheless, it is anything that I consider is really worth hunting at.

If we try it once more, we will make a great deal of bulletins!

Here’s part two of the two aspect collection!

The previous dilemma arrives from my neighbor.

Q: I was informed that applied motor vehicle costs are ultimately coming down.

Is that legitimate?

— G at?v=vd8969oeem4

A: In truth they are, but there is a thing you should really know…

Not ALL used cars and trucks are coming down in rate, and not all sellers are playing great. Also, the autos in question are not the most common, like Tacomas, Wranglers, pickups and whatnot. A lot of of the used cars that seem to be to be much more fair in selling price are persons movers, like economy cars and trucks, tiny/midsize sedans and some crossovers.

I don’t imagine the balloon popped, but the market appears to be allowing off some steam. This could be a sign of points to appear, and we’ll have some thorough posts on the topic on shortly.

Cheers! at?v=aF81DqKbJr8
