This is the Hybrid Van Barack Wants You to Buy (video)

Hello If you are new here, you might want to to the RSS feed for updates on this

I feel for President Obama days.  A few days ago, Barry released his long-form certificate. silencing some not all) of the nutters birthers#8217; in a bid to move on towards more issues.  The dialog surrounding the however, reminded me of another that came up earlier month, when Obama an assembly of wind farm saying #8230;

I know some of these big they’re all still driving big SUVs. You know, they got big monster trucks and everything. one of them? Well, now, my point.

If you’re complaining the price of gas and you’re only eight miles a gallon–(laughter)–you may a big family, but it’s probably not big. How many you have? Ten you say? Ten kids? (Laughter.) you definitely need a hybrid van .

#8230; which has inspired writers to described the comment as a equivalent to #8220;let them eat #8220;, only to ask the question doesn#8217;t anyone make a van?#8221;.

Here#8217;s the thing:  someone

It#8217;s called the Toyota and it#8217;s been in production 2001.  That#8217;s right:  manufactures a 40 mpg people-hauler with AWD, and it#8217;s been for a decade.

Here#8217;s a quick walk-around of the Estima (by Lease ) for the unitiated.

The real question, then, be why about Barack Obama suggest a hybrid van.  the question should be about why we have the Toyota Estima.  in 2008, when Gas 2.0 editor Chambers wrote about the his research and questions led him to the conclusion #8220;Toyota didn’t think would buy it because it wasn’t a minivan and it didn#8217;t have power .#8221;

Before we about Toyota being or wrong about full-sized I#8217;d like to ask:  exactly, did the oxymoronic concept of full-sized minivan#8221; come to be, in the place?  Surely that is the equivelant to #8220;let them eat right?


I should probably at this point, that I own a It is a refrigerator-white 2009 Volkswagen and I love it.  When it time to trade it in, I#8217;ll get another one.  However, I pull it next to another #8211; let#8217;s say a second-generation Caravan #8211; I notice a bit jarring:  my minivan isn#8217;t at all.

  Indeed, the 1994 seven passenger Dodge is 178 #8221; long, compared to the 202 length of my VW.  The Volkswagen is significantly wider, taller, and than that #8217;94 could ever hope to be, too but something doesn#8217;t jive.

That #8220;something#8221;?  By Toyota#8217;s the bigger, faster Routan have sold rings the smaller, slower Caravan but that#8217;s just not the case.  In sales of the Routan were so that in January 2009, VW of stopped production of the Routan for the of February after 29,000 had been shipped to US dealerships.

  11,677 units had sold by 2009 .  The Dodge, in its day, nearly 10x as many of the smaller, Caravans #8211; so, where that leave Toyota?

to bring the Estima (finally!) to US with ad copy that shouts:  this is the hybrid the President wants you to own! America is just going to to settle for the five-passenger Prius V. Ed.)

You gotta admit, be great copy for the 4th of July
