Stacking-optimization is one of the reasons I will never trade in my first-generation Scion xB. It dwarfs the cargo capacity to engine size (or MPG) ratio of anything else you could buy. I usually go over the cargo weight capacity before I run out of room.

I will keep rebuilding the engine on this thing until batteries become better, then I will put a 200kW motor the size of a grapefruit on it with a 100kWh battery or something. I love this car. Too bad they screwed it in 2008. The new Cube is ok, but the xB1 is still better.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
