And what about all your shopping purchases you left in the trunk?

True, but you'd have just as much trouble on a bus or train if you bought a lot of stuff at the store. These cars aren't being pitched as a replacement to personal vehicles, but more as a decentralization of mass transit that will allow passengers more freedom than what is currently available in many urban areas.
