Canada got a dashboard with a tachometer.

Any Previa with a Tesla retrofit.

Ya! That would be awesome!

Either that or heavily modded to contain a Toyota Synergy Drive hybrid system.

But I think you win!

IIRC the Diesel Previa was also slightly more compact in order to be subjected to lower taxes at the Japanese domestic market. Haven't seen any, even though JDM vehicles exported to Paraguay are a common sight on Brazilian beaches during the summer.

I don't know what it is about the Previa, but if I ever need a hauler I'd probably get an old Previa instead of anything else. Preferably a diesel engine imported on an older stick shift Previa or the super charged engine that came out circa 1995 onward on an older pre-1995 stick shift Previa. I might even go for an AWD version.
I like the flying ones they used on Star Trek the Next Generation.
