    What do you plan/hope your model x will be capable of carrying?

    I will start in order of importance:

    1) kids and their friends,
    2) 80+ pound dog,
    3) bikes,
    4) skis of all shapes and sizes,
    5) Sea kayaks and or canoe
    6) camping equipment,
    7) furniture, plants, boards, etc.

    I tried to stick to the more challenging loads so left out things like groceries. There has been plenty of discussion on potential solutions or lack there of already. So let's stick to needs not solutions for this thread.

    Purely of the pro-creative variety.

    1) kids and their friends
    2) Luggage for frequent impromptu cheap vacations
    3) C1 from Lit Motors (Segway-Like self-balancing fully enclosed Electric Motorcycle)

    My biggest fear it that my future wife will slowly try to take over the Model X. :)

    Interesting cargo. If the c1 ever comes to production, the soonest it is likely to show up is 2013. Is this your idea of ultimate range extender? When the model x runs out charge, you abandon it and continue in the C1? :rolleyes:

    LOL!! No while your Model X is charging you can take the C1 to run errands or to go find something to eat. etc.. etc..

    BTW.. The C1 can carry 2 people.
