He drives a ute.

Can’t say I understood that

“ute” = “utility vehicle” (small pickup truck)


Ty – the dictionary link sent me somewhere else, Swedish iirc.

Never heard of ute before. English learners, be careful what you learn🤔

It is common in Australia. I heard it also in Mexico.
It is used for e.g. a VW Golf with a small truck bed. These cars are popular there.
It is not wrong to learn it, even if neither the car type nor the word is popular on the British Isles.


Gday! So hey, that’s like cool. We live and like learn yeah! :+1:Perhaps it never reached Kirribilli! I’m probably more in tune with a uke than a ute:-)
