Now your firefly can tow your fifth-wheel. Now your firefly can beat a porche off the line. Now your suv can get great fuel economy with an alt powered trailer (hybrid, electric...................................). Parking would rot, but not that badly. Adjacent lots could be made for them or, after
commuting people could leave them at storage facilities.
Land-Rover did this years ago...
