For our purposes, the key difference between Car and Truck SUV's is gross vehicle weight, and the two types are separated at 6,000 pounds. The Model X would be a Truck SUV.

Which is why it’s confusing. Consumers would generally not look at a big SUV and call it a truck.

If we’re discussing consumer demand trends for different types of vehicles, what we need to consider is whether they want a sedan, an SUV, a van, a crossover between those, or a pickup truck. They don’t want to buy a truck only to find out it’s actually an SUV, or vice-versa. So the classification system that you and I have clarified, seems to be a source of confusion to those who claim that trucks as a vehicle market segment (don’t confuse with brands either) are the number one sellers. They are not. Cars (non-SUV) are. Which are mostly sedans.
