Fun Utility Vehicle. The SRK designator came from Nathan Fillion's comment "It drives like a shark!"

I understand that you would wonder that. But the drivetrain is so tightly integrated into the architecture and systems, that doing that would essentially destroy the vehicle.

My solution would be to make a pusher trailer through-the-road hybrid. It does have a tow rating.

Further to last night it was interesting to hear Mark Frohnmayer explain to the Car & Driver interviewer why they went to pouches instead of cylindrical cells for the battery. Cells like the 18650 are spiral wound and when the layers expand and contract it mechanically stresses the inner part of the coil.
