Maybe you don’t understand engineering. It’s always a trade. They optimized interior volume, cargo space, head room, ease of entry over a few more miles of highway range. If they were truly going to design a city car, they would have only put 40kWh of batteries in or less. It is clearly designed as a good multipurpose car. When people compare to the X for aero, I say that Tesla sacrificed too much to the aero gods for that car. It looks like crap, and the usefulness as an CUV is limited because of the sloping and narrow back end.
