Short commentary with these pictures of an aero modded Prius was ignorant.

Yeah. How do they know it doesn't have foot pedals.

If it did have pedals, that would be quite an engineering feat, but then commentators like this wouldn't know engineering if it bit them in the ass.

Maybe I misspoke. There are two senses, a reflex S-curve as I intended is actually for statistics.

https://www.reference.com/math/ogive...2e505ca3a5ec74

Quote:
An ogive graph is a smooth S-shaped curve that is used in statistics. The graph is obtained by plotting the values of cumulative frequency against the upper boundary points of the class intervals.
vs what I'd call a Gothic arch:

Quote:
Ogive
An ogive is the roundly tapered end of a two-dimensional or three-dimensional object. Ogive curves and surfaces are used in engineering, architecture and woodworking.
More at Wikipedia


I thought this was an ogive:

This dovetails nicely with the boat tail mod that could improve the range of a Tesla Model 3 to 380 miles both Phil and I are talking about.

One could replace the trunk lid with a stressed box to double the storage space in a boat tail.
