We have a Q5 and a "green" buddy of mine complained when we got it that it was for "make believe utility". Well, tons of vet visits, grocery trips, lowes expeditions, move assists, road trips and of course transporting my winter wheels to and fro the dealer, I can say it's gotten its use. If I needed more "utility", which I may in the future, I'd get a pickup.
All the SUVs on the road impair visibility for those few of us still in cars. It's like being at a football game where the guy in front of you stands up reflexively for any play that's remotely interesting -- really annoying, but at least at the stadium I can stand up, too.
Regardless of your feelings toward them though, it's an extremely smart move for Tesla to leverage a platform they invested so heavily in to tap a very healthy market here in the US.
SUVs are absolutely awesome and necessary for hunting trips. The clearance is essential on washed out mountain roads and the 4 wheel drive is pretty essential for mud/snow/slush. There is plenty of room for your hunting buddies and lots of guns and game. The only SUV my parents bought was for that purpose and it did its job perfectly. The idea of an all electric SUV is very tantalizing because you could potentially have higher clearance and independent wheel motors. I would love to see that happen.
Zero seems to be happy building off-road electric motorcycles.
