I don't see any offroad snobbery. I only see a big, high, ugly wagon.
"Rugged" styling, 7-slot grille, likely some adjustable off-road electronics.
That'd be interesting for sure
Style means nothing. You can style your car to look like you want. Ingame version will look different as well.
Presence of off-road electronics is very unlikely, since it is meant for Chinese cities and motorways, not some wilderness.
So, wait, Austria can't build a fictional SUV in BeamNG 's parallel universe because "it wasn't a thing" during WWII?
- Austria "was a thing" before WWII. Hello, History!
- Steyr Werke AG, becoming Steyr-Daimler-Puch in 1934...?
- Puch/Steyr-Puch building military vehicles after WWII...?
- Steyr-Puch 700AP developed (right in the '50s, so soon after WWII ended) in order to replace the Jeep Willis still in use by the Austrian army...?
Steyr-Puch was simply one of the best known 4x4 experts in Europe after WWII...
Suggestion makes perfect sense. Besides, a modern SUV doesn't imply a long tradition in the field or past military involvement, pretty much every manufacturer has one in their current lineup and plenty of them were nothing during WWII.
Fact that they produce Mercedes G-Class, means a lot in 4x4 world.
They also engineered the Panda 4x4 system. And, incidentally, also assembled some Chrysler and Jeep products for the european markets.
Was it all real? Yeah.
But the Austrian market didn't have the prowess needed to launch civilian Jeeps, Land Rovers or Land Cruisers.

2004 - 2008

-Why it should be added?
-We don't have any small Italian cars, nor city cars, small vans and SUVs at all. It would also be good for upcoming Italy map, since this type of cars is very common there.
tbh, I'd actually like to see a GM New Look or a similar flavour in the game. It is one of the most beloved buses in North America, being used in the majority of transportation authorities. Obviously, it won't be branded as a GM bus for copyright/trademark reasons. These ones were ordered by the Toronto Transit Commission, who arguably had the one of the largest fleet of such buses. Photos aren't mine.
Why should it be added?
-Everyone loves it
-We need more buses lol
-Popular for it's day and age
Neither did Spain. Heck, Spain didn't even have a local manufacturer. Yet SEAT has 3 SUVs in their lineup today.
French manufacturers had almost zero expertise in 4x4 vehicles - up to the point they all had to get into joint-ventures with foreign manufacturers when the French Military needed old Jeeps replaced in the '70s. Thus the Peugeot P4 was born - based on the austrian-designed Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, no less! Today they all have SUVs in their lineups.
Besides, BeamNG is literally a parallel universe. One where a monstrosity like the SBR4 gets greenlit and an obvious Jeep knock-off is branded as a japanese car... and people are fine with it because ehy, the wiki says it draws inspiration from the J40 Land Cruiser, even if it looks nothing like it. So what exactly is wrong with an austrian-branded knock-off of a chinese-built FIAT in drag?

Alright, so my idea is the Laika/Trabant 601 Deluxe! It's a cute little car with a very weak body that would crash spectacularly for sure! There are a lot of 3D files for the body that someone could work with, or you can just try and model it from the game Jalopy. Or both! Simplify the model based on the real car to look like the body from the game Jalopy and make the engine like the game too! Maybe have different versions that are faster or slower have the different engine parts from the game! I mean the models from the game are simple enough, one might be able to convince the developer himself to send the parts in!
1997 - 2003 Bruckell Interest - Oldsmobile Intrigue
A midsize sports sedan available with a V6 or Supercharged V6 engine.
The base model of the Interest, with a N/A V6, bland alloy wheels, and cloth seats.
The luxury model of the interest, with sportier wheels and leather seats.
The sporty version of the Interest with a Supercharged V6 and a black leather interior with lowered suspension and a bodykit. Limited to a production run of just 750.
I need a roomba in this game. A giant one. Like, the size of a building.
Lemme address all of the things you selected as suggestions:
Clothes Iron plane? Not very realistic in compatibility..
No clue what a Roomba is.
How'd you "suck" with the vacuum cleaner?
Interesting suggestion, a street sweaper, hmmmmmm... I D E A S
Very non-aerodynamic shape, also, remember, to keep it realistic you'll also have to have the "cockpit" for these vehicles aswell...
Shopping cart already exists, linked somewhere in this thread already
Pinewood derby cars would be very hard due to the decreased size = more nodes and more complex jbeam structure..
A roomba is a little robot that travels around your house as a vacuum.
Jay Leno's tank car would be cool
a microscopic car and a giant one
these are just ideas of course, the iron could just be a land vehicle.
Does the vacuum have to suck? it can just be a huge vacuum you can drive around.
A toaster could have controls inside where the heating coils would be, with a window on the side.
And the pinewood derby cars could be scaled up to real vehicle proportions.
