Daily Driver Comforts

  • From all of us at Scout Motors, welcome to the Scout Community! We created this community to provide Scout owners, enthusiasts, and curiosity seekers with a place to engage in discussion, suggestions, stories, and connections. Supportive communities are sometimes hard to find, but we're determined to turn this into one.

    Additionally, Scout Motors wants to hear your feedback and speak directly to the rabid community of owners as unique as America. We'll use the Scout Community to deliver news and information on events and launch updates directly to the group. Although the start of production is anticipated in 2026, many new developments and milestones will occur in the interim. We plan to share them with you on this site and look for your feedback and suggestions.

    How will the Scout Community be run? Think of it this way: this place is your favorite local hangout. We want you to enjoy the atmosphere, talk to people who share similar interests, request and receive advice, and generally have an enjoyable time. The Scout Community should be a highlight of your day. We want you to tell stories, share photos, spread your knowledge, and tell us how Scout can deliver great products and experiences. Along the way, Scout Motors will share our journey to production with you.

    Scout is all about respect. We respect our heritage. We respect the land and outdoors. We respect each other. Every person should feel safe, included, and welcomed in the Scout Community. Being kind and courteous to the other forum members is non-negotiable. Friendly debate is welcomed and often produces great outcomes, but we don't want things to get too rowdy. Please take a moment to consider what you post, especially if you think it may insult others. We'll do our best to encourage friendly discourse and to keep the discussions flowing.

    So, welcome to the Scout Community! We encourage you to check back regularly as we plan to engage our members, share teasers, and participate in discussions. The world needs Scouts. Let's get going.

    We are Scout Motors.
No matter whether it supports phone-as-key, retina scan or brain implants, I’d really like to ensure that there is a physical key backup that works when the battery is dead or you’re far from a network, so I can at least crawl into the vehicle to be safe from mosquito attacks.

I suppose safety from bears might be too much to hope for . . .
It used to be fashionable to carry a lock pick in your wallet - just in case - but what do you do when there's no lock to pick? As we venture further into the era of high tech everything, and with our Scouts further from civilization, there's a comfort to knowing there are some simple failsafes that will allow us to function, even live, when all else fails for the lack of an electron.
That and air cooled seats are the best
I didn’t know that air cooled seats existed until I test drove a KIA and it was amazing! Cool air straight from the AC pumped through the seat kept my back wonderfully sweat free!

(Or was that TMI?)
