    The FCA Brampton plant paint shop can’t paint a body much taller than the 300 without significant oven changes. This has limited FCA model options in that plant. Taller bodies like the Pacifica need to go to a shop like Windsor.

    Converting BAP to trucks would be a very big $ program as it would be a new body shop and most of a new paint shop.

    Great show. Thanks.

    Can’t see why there is no electrification of Pizza delivery cars, mobile speed camera vans, electric trailers to assist trucks, Ford transit connect vans, Airport luggage trucks, Supermarket Food delivery vans. Florist and bread vans
