Sorry, but I agree with you. I don't like the idea of a car being hacked into, and remotely-controlled, monitored... or even shut down. I wonder how ransomware is going to evolve because of that. I also don't like the idea of not being able to work on my own car. Because companies like Ferrari and John Deere refuse to release that Revenue to the public

Seeing how technology is changing everything scares me when thinking about the future. When it gets to the point when all cars drives itself, i think about situations like, what if something happens like someone or a group of ppl decides to hack the system that controls these cars then no one can use their vehicles. What stops the government from doing that if they want to for any reason. All this technology being implemented in our lives is just taking control away from us as the people. Gotta think about who is controlling all this technology when it gets to that point because they will be in control of all of us and we will be at their mercy

Nightfly Pred 3 dnevi
Why would they need to figure out how to make an electric car sound good? One of the benefits of an electric car is the lack of engine noises. Drive an electric car for a week, then get into a car with an ICE, and tell me the engine noise isn't annoying.
@Nightfly nah you hear the engine better
Nightfly Pred 2 dnevi
@SİLVERGLOBAL EW1R You do, it's been tested and proven. In city traffic, tire noise is louder than the engine noise. Especially with EV's, as they are heavier and thus produce more tire noise. Tire noise is the noise of the tires on the road, the "zooming" sound, which is what you hear when a car is approaching.
@Nightfly You do not hear tire noise
Nightfly Pred 2 dnevi
@SİLVERGLOBAL EW1R How do you not understand that you do hear the tire noise? You cannot hear the engine over the tire noise as in city traffic the tire noise is louder than the engine noise. You're saying you can hear someone whisper over someone drilling. It doesn't make any logical sense.
@Nightfly in order for me to hear tire noise I either have to be at a point blank range or the other person is sliding or at the limit of grip I'm also not American
massContinuity Pred 3 dnevi
No flying cars? It depends on how you define a car. Like you mention there is a shift moving toward ubiquitous mobility. Will a car simply be a mobility machine? This is especially true where I work. We have an entire division devoted to urban air mobility.

2035 Nah We Good. $ based on oil. ICE's will still be around, and these agreements on electric. Will fall short due to demand on Lithium. Many will push for hydrogen but people hate waiting during fueling up. Ethanol will go even higher in popularity, and conversions to it. Now unless some chemist discovers a compound or way to make lithium denser but lighter with huge range (Than Ignore everything above) Also Bring Back Up and Down headlights.

A long time ago, I heard about a computer game where combustion cars where irregular. Only autonomous vehicles (which would decide where you were going or not) were allowed. I don't want to be pessimistic, but this future that the game mentioned may be starting to happen.

They are not banning the internal combustion engine. They are banning internal combustion engines powered with benzin or diesel. All to achieve CO2 neutrality. If any manufacturer will introduce internal combustion engine powered with an alternative fuel it won't be banned.

FortuitusVideo Pred 5 dnevi
I doubt these emission regulations will stand. Its one thing to write a law. Its quite another to completely redesign the energy infrastructure of a country. Not only does the electricity grid have to be improved, despite its own complete redesign, but so do gas stations and charging technology. Let's see how long politicians stand by regulation when 3/4 of the population cant afford to leave their house. Or to buy the new electric cars.

if givernments and environmentalists really, reeeeally cared about a change right now, they would "support" development of synthethic fuels for an imediate change, instead of waiting more while the internal combustion engine dies... they are placing a 25 year deadline for it. if synthethic fuel had any support, well we would pollute less for the time being

corail53 Pred 6 dnevi
The US is about 40 years behind in infrastructure upgrades and repairs. We aren't going to see mass smart roads that help EV self driving anytime soon (the occasional test road sure) but for a freeway - that takes decades. The government is the literal road block because of how slow bureaucracy takes to get things moving. Planning, budgeting, spending, contracts, vital locations, etc etc etc all have to get drawn up and approved by the house and currently Biden's two trillion dollar plan is not getting much headway. So no we won't see major "smart" roads to help driverless cars anytime in the near future - we will see a bunch of test roads though which will get marketed as moving forward for campaigning purposes but that's about it.

I don't care that electric and other forms of car engines are coming into the scene BUT DONT take away my freedom of choice if I want an ICE engine. This whole electric vehicle bullshit that California is pushing on everyone in the next decade is a good overreach of government power. Don't mess with my choice. If you want a hydrogen powered car, cool. If you want an electric car, you do you. Don't force a decision that will probably bite you in the ass later on down the road
[Steam]Krypton Pred 6 dnevi
Electric cars won't work, we can't mine enough Lithium and rare earth to provide the Batteries and internal parts for all the Electric cars. I personally think Porsche has the right direction: They try to engineer synthetic Bio-neutral fuels. We would create an even bigger Waste Problem by getting rid of the Combustion cars. I personally think it will in the end be hydrogen that will power us in 25 years. The hydrogen fuel cell is a awesome way to create energy and it is in fact the most clean way to drive.

Yeah, nobody older then 15 or an IQ over 80 actually believes that gasoline cars actually have any kind of major effect on the climate. 1 big volcano puts out more emissions than we could do in 2000 years of driving 60s era muscle cars. So when the millennial generation lies themselves into driving miserable little peasant cars and only the super rich own cool cars, just remember that you brought it on yourselves. I dont have to worry about it in my lifetime because we dont take orders from soy boy cowards that are terrified the worlds going to end and were all going to burn from tye holes in the ozone. Yeah ozone, that was the lie they were spouting in the early 90s that turnee out to be bullshit. Quit passing on the lie, all your doing is scaring kids too young to reason, and promoting the politicians that make money of the scare tactics. Theve been doing it forever.

Simple. Stop buying new cars untill the auto industry pulls their heads out of their asses. Boycott! No car should cost more than $30k. New vehicles are too cheaply made to come with such high sticker prices. If we all just fix up old cars instead of buying new ones, the auto industry will be forced to change.

"mobility companies" and yet still just concentrating on cars, which for most of their usage is horrendously inefficient, even if they're electric. PEVs are at least 10x more efficient. 1kwh will get you 4km in a Tesla. 1kwh gets you 40km on an e-scooter. At a decent speed too, a good 40-50km/h. For our short-range transportation (which is most of our trips) a PEV is far better.
