Sorry, that wasn't clear. Not that you are not an adopter at all, just in this case you are not. It doesn't fit you. Like I am a non-adopter of the Model X. I don't like the doors. They are mechanically complex, compete with headroom (most of my family is 6' - 7' tall, my daughter is the shortest one at 5' 11") and I don't understand the benefit aside from they look cool. So, I am not an adopter of Model X. Overall I am an early adopter of technology that suits me, as you seem to be. Just in the case of the yoke, we differ.
I gotcha now - all good!! And we agree on the FWDs actually -- I've adapted to them because the X fits a need we can't solve for any other way ... At the time, no other 3-row EVs existed; now the R1S is available as the only competition, but I'll still keep the X. My son's 6'3" and has no problem in the X, but in your clan he'd be on the short side.. I'll have to tell him that; he'll find it funny! haha. Otherwise I agree - FWDs are a solution to a problem nobody asked. Knock on wood, they've been absolutely trouble free for us, but I really could take or leave them.
Truth be told, the "best" EV for that purpose would be a minivan, but that wouldn't be permitted within 100 yards of our driveway... LOL.
We're all on the same team here; doesn't mean we have to agree to every identical thing - and I really appreciate the civility of this entire discussion -- it's how these forums are *supposed* to work (but usually don't!)
Beer's on me next time you find yourself in Jersey. (Or, I find myself in the Springs.... and then I'll suggest dinner @ Peppertree?)
