    I thought "DoKa", when translated to english meant "double cab" (what we call a "crew cab" that had 4 doors)? I know that translation works for the fire department issued Unimogs from Germany and Sweden that were imported to the US.

    Most VW Transporter Doka's, including mine, have only 3 doors, one on the driver side only. And yes, Doka is a generic term for 'crew cab'.
    I got mine as I don't tow anything, and usually carry only one motorcycle in the back in addition to the normal hardware store cargo.
    Once I did put about 3000 lb of paver stones in the back and the suspension didn't bottom out - though braking at highway speeds would of been a gamble. It is however rated for 1/2 ton use. All this, in a crew cab shorter than most mid size sedans.

    This is why I think there is a market for different form factors in pickups and vans. I would not buy a conventional pickup.

    I love the sides folding down too, very practical, Styling being awful, how well does the Promaster City sell with the front-end styling?

    Promaster city pickup or flatbed with Renault Kangaroo EV system. I think a lot of businesses would mind a runabout pickup to replace those early chevy S-10, early Ford Rangers. Because the newer Ford Ranger and Chevy Colorado / GMC Canyon don't offer standard cab long bed and they are too big and tall in marketing more to the 4x4 public.
