What I can't figure out is why 4 seaters are so common. The average contents is about 1.3 people in North America. When we really care about efficiency, we ride bicycles, and there are a thousand single bikes for every tandem. In India, (years ago) I noticed that trucks and busses didn't generally move until they were up to the GVW as a minimum.

BTW, the Nido started out as a "Safety Car" and I always wished it had been chosen as the Smart shape.
