there are definitely more out there... i think its bc of rising gas prices, elements are also a good bargain in terms of space, MPG, and of course quality IMO. if you have a family of 4 (like myself!), forget them expensive gas guzzling SUVs!i've been see'n a lot more elements lately. i've been thinkin it's because i drive one so i may notice them more, but i really think they've caught on. opinions??
