    The SAM Snow King would be great for the winters here in the northeast. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to drive.

    I'm really sorry, but the SAM is the ugliest, scariest, flimsiest piece of crap since the Yugo. Why do we continue to import vehicles of such inferior quality and appearance. If you watch videos of SAM being driven, the road noise drowns out the radio. The fit and finish of the interior are the absolute worst. Check out the fold down plastic windows. Bring back Fred Flintstone's ride...at least it was solid! I would take any other 3 wheeler over "The Thing". Guaranteed, SAM is going nowhere because no one will want it. On the other hand Arcimoto, EM, ELIO, Sondors, Vanderhall, Morgan etc... will all have a place at the 3 wheeled table...guaranteed!

    So, are you saying you don't like it?

    Yeah, it's aerodynamic, seats two in tandem, is energy efficient, has car controls and has three wheels. What's not to hate?
    Oh... wait...

    I'll believe you about 'seats two in tandem', sure looks like a one seater? Are you sure?? Pretty sure it's only one???

    You can see pictures online showing a passenger. Not sure how much room is back there, but it does have a second seat:

    I have not been keeping up with Joeker88's videos, but you can see the interior and back seat in this video he posted recently:

    This ugly thing would be completely useless in any real amount of snow. For someone that has been snowmobiling since childhood, I can say that the track size that thing has is almost nothing and would make it useless. There is a reason all snowmobiles have long or even extended tracks to move them through the snow...
