YOU are the only one unhappy about the word vegan. Why should the rest of the English speaking world stop using that word?
And again, in the Fisker press release, the word only appears once. We've used it much more in this thread.

VEGAN VEGAN VEGAN
:laugh:
By leaving vegan out of it, the car will appeal to more people. Their goal is selling cars, make them as friendly to ALL people as you possibly can.

How do vegans feel about oil? It comes from dead dinosaurs, and those were animals.

So quite frankly I think anyone with rubber tires on their car who shouts "vegan this vegan that" is full of sh*t.

In the context of an automobile, it is a pretty silly word choice.

I much prefer a good cloth over. leather...however, that's hard to come by these days.

If the animal is already being eaten for its tasty beef, why not use the hide? Seems like it would be pretty wasteful to not use all of the animal.
I don't disagree, but the option for "animal-free" should exist for people whose religion or lifestyle is opposed to consuming animals (or cows, specifically).

It has always seemed odd to me that a rapidly depreciating Ford Taurus would be lined with the skins of a formerly living being(s).
That just feels upside down on the Karma index.

Oil is mostly plant matter, but even if it contains dinosaur juice, those animals died naturally and weren't killed for their skin or meat.

So by calling it something other than Vegan, they will not buy it??

Again, call it animal friendly, and everyone is happy. Whats the big deal about that?
I have yet to see a rational reason for not using "vegan" posted by anyone here.

You think it's dumb? That's not rational.

There are plenty of people, like my wife, that appreciate the companies go to the effort of specifically saying they are vegan because there is no ambiguity.

You're the one policing the word choice. I really think others don't care that much...

Calling it vegan gets the point across.


Don't you bring Subaru's into this.

Hey, watch your labeling! A CrossFit is clearly a Honda and is entitled to be addressed as such,

Any chance we can drop the semantics on a single word and discuss the car, the strategy, etc. ? It’s actually pretty groundbreaking stuff.

Her car has leather seats, correct?

My bad. Truthfully it will be hard for me to get excited about this car until it is shown. I've become jaded by companies promising a lot and not delivering.

The range is important to me. A sub $40,000 EV that can go 300 miles would absolutely competitive enough for me to think about ditching gasoline for my wife's daily driver.

I agree about the contract / financing. That's a game changer for any car segment..

Here's my question: what do you think are the dimensions on this vehicle? The original article or anything stated in this thread doesn't say anything...is this Pilot sized, CRV sized? Any educated guesses?

(Edit: I'm guessing using the term SUV pushes it to a larger than CUV sized vehicle, but the pics make it look "small"?)
