As technology grows and the needs of people change, vehicle manufacturers are looking for ways to incorporate comfort and quality into their vehicles while keeping the function ability and adaptability intact. For most tradies looking for a ute that has great storage capacity or a vehicle that can incorporate van racking systems is top on their list. However, with more and more families needing second vehicles, finding an interchangeable option is starting to make its way into the market.
One option that is being looked at and will hit the market soon is a car-based ute. With a car-based ute the ability to have van storage or other types of storage options may be a necessity worth exploring. One of the main reasons that people are anticipating the release of these utes is that they offer the style of a car, the space of ute as well as can go from home to work in style.
One drawback, however, is that the structure of these vehicles won’t be able to handle any type of van racking systems that are currently on the market. As a result, van storage will need to be adapted and modified for these new lines of vehicles.
To start with these new breads of vehicles will focus on comfort over storage. The interior will be updated with the newest technologies and safety features. For women, these new utes will be a welcome addition to marketplace since they can have all aspects of home and work in one convenient vehicle.
With a release date in 2021 these vehicles are still not being discussed too much. However, if you were to find one of these, here are some of the features that would most be desired.
You would want to have extended storage in the back. Where a typical trunk would be it would have a covered section where you can store your typical goods.

Say, a work configuration compared to a leisure configuration.
