That's the recommended payload for everyday use. You can double that for a one off.

It is the payload you can get in without exceeding the maximum permitted gross vehicle weight.

I once miscalculated the weight of steel I put into the van and put 500kgs in it. The suspension went down to the stops and it was virtually undrivable.

My Golf suspension was on the stops when the boot and back seats were piled up with gravel. It drove fine, apart from not being able to get over speedbumps without scraping loudly at 1mph. Mind you, the bumps round here aren't traversable at the speed limit by most new hatchbacks without scraping.

No.
This page:
http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/cars/types/exterior-and-cargo- comparison.htm
has a rather extensive list of cargo capacities for various vehicles.
Very few have a rating greater that 1000 pounds, and the ones that have ratings above 2000 pounds are not "cars".
A tonne is just short of a long ton. I suppose you might be able to GET a tonne in a car,but if you do, it won't GO anywhere.

Actually 'tonne' means a metric ton, 1000kg. A short ton means 2000lbs as opposed to an Imperial or Long Ton of 2240lbs.

I am quite aware of what a tonne is.
And it is indeed, just short of a long ton.
Except, perhaps, in UnclePeterWorld.

I expect it would go although the first sleeping policeman or pothole it hits will be its last. Typically anything above 500kg is pushing it in a saloon car. Way back I helped a friend collect some heavy stuff once and the return journey was interesting with the mudflaps scraping on the ground at every bend. I very much doubt if it was a safe load.

Which at 2205lbs is pretty close to 1 stone short of a long ton.

so a tonne is, conveniently, almost the same weight as an imperial ton.

The capacities you are looking at are the safe legal capacities. The car will obviously carry way more than that illegally, while wearing it out if you did it a lot.

I suspect you actually mean the court can't refuse to accept payment (to at least the value) made in smaller numbers of coins.
(A similar issue is that there is no right to change.)
