Honda Element goes to the dogs

April 15th, 2009 No comments

I just adopted a dog.  It’s a pound puppy (well, kinda) and by the time this post is published, he’ll be the newest addition to the family.  So when I read about Honda releasing a version of their popular Element utility vehicle specifically for dog owners, I was all ears.


The Element was already popular with active folks cause it’s basically a giant sheet of plastic inside.  You can wash the thing out with a hose.  And its various tent options allow for simple tailgating to taking a family of four on a three week safari through darkest Africa.  Ok maybe only a week safari through the jungles of the exurbs, but still.

The canine-friendly version can be equiped with dog restraints, a ramp to help older dogs get in/out, a raised platform so your pooch can still see the family, rear fan for ventilation, and a built-in water bowl.  I am seriously eyeing this baby as my next car.
