Spin off from the discussion of the increasing weight in consumer cars in general these days, if you got the fictional title of emperor of the earth and had the power to control marketing/manufacturing of the automotive industry in general, and disliked the growing trend of car size/weight/bulk. What steps would you take to force ppl to go with your line of thinking (getting away from large trucks & SUVs from ppl with no commericial needs or real use, large oversized luxury sedans) and make ppl downsize their vehicle requirements so they go back to the way things were when the car industry was much younger, leading to smaller, lighter cars which have better efficiency, handling, take up less space on the road, parking lots and pose less of a danger to each other during collisions.
