Second place was the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet
In third, the Chrysler 200/Dodge Avenger
Fourth went to the Honda Crosstour
The BMW 5-Series GT was fifth
In sixth place, the Acura ZDX, which will take this dubious honor to its grave
Seventh place is the Cadillac Escalde – still numero uno for rappers and Texan housewives
The Jeep Patriot was eighth
The poor Fisker Karma can’t catch a break – it didn’t even win the TWATs, settling for ninth place
And finally, the Chevrolet Volt may be the EV sales champion, but it had to settled for a lowly tenth

- John Not everyone pays that much for power. Mine is 10 cents per kw…..
- TheEndlessEnigma I didn't need another reason to stay away from NYC, and yet I was handed another reason.
- Analoggrotto Telluride makes more sense. If it can win the wars of suburbia there is no batllefield on earth that can stop this mighty ATP smokin' yogabox.
- SCE to AUX The 2.5/8A was a little weak in the heavier Santa Fe I test drove, but it could be perfect in the Sonata. The SF I bought has the 2.5T/8DC, and it's been a good drivetrain so far.I'm not in the market, but this looks like a great value at any trim level.
- 28-Cars-Later "Yes, I wrote a while back that the truck would be a sales flop. "Not sure if it will be a hit, but I doubt a flop - it will sell well and perhaps very well depending on eventual pricing. If they put GM Hummer EV money on it as I assume (at first) sales will be limited. But if in a year this becomes the new "Model S" being the step above model from the more plebian 3/Y (say 20-30K+) but still in the 5%er ballpark, I think it will sell well and perhaps even become a hit. "I don't think the average truck buyer who's thinking EV is going to move away from a Ford Lightning or Rivian"I disagree, if someone is in the market for this class they know about the CyberTruck. They may not like the CT, but they are also aware Tesla is the only company to have put out a serious BEV which despite a lot of build quality issues does seem to deliver on its promises. Rivian should be commended, but they are Tesla ten years ago and will suffer similar teething issues. Ford is in complete disarray with nearly all of its products, only very loyal Ford buyers are looking at Lightning. If I was in the market I would hold off for another year to see if a less, shall we say ostentatious, CyberTruck appears (or even body kits or something to refine the polarizing look which I think turns off otherwise surefire buyers)."the Cybertruck appears to be limited in its ability to be used for utilitarian purposes."Just like "SUV"s. "I don't think you'll see many used for towing or off-roading." Just like "SUV"s. You also won't see many Rivians or F150 Lightnings either if any at all. "I could be wrong -- opinions and predictions often are. But I just don't see Johnny the electrician, Mary the Rancher, or Jennifer the horse breeder buying these trucks for work purposes."They're also not buying the Rivians or Lightnings either. The electrical contractor whose shop is behind the building I recently bought told me he mostly runs vans but also has a Chevy 1500 2WD W/T beater like most trades/construction people. However his personal truck is a 2021ish Raptor, no joke. The Lightning came up in a conversation, and being an electrician this man is a fan of BEV but he said there was no way he wasn't getting the Raptor after he profited well enough on his 2018 F150 trading in 2022 (somehow bought the 2018 new-used or off lease or something and claimed he made 20 or 30K on it).
