The new cars are shipped with the subscription system built-in.
“Look Joe, your bank bounced off the monthly payment, so until you pony up the cash, the car can’t be started and your doors stay unlocked. Hurry up or else”
Sound ridiculous, but let’s have the same conversation in let’s say, 5-6 years. Porche, BMW and others are in this already, prepare your wallets.
Cars as in SaaS system…more money flowing towards car manufacturer and you never get to fully own your car.
I am also looking to get a second car, Japanese petrol cars, Toyota, Honda or Mazda are my interest. But also, hybrid petroleum/GLP cars.
My thoughts on electric cars. Everyone wants them, everyone are so convinced that electric is the future. It isn’t.
Hear me out. Let’s assume that 50% of any first world countries have electric cars. Without any electrical engineering knowledge, what will happen to the power grid during the peak hours, when everyone plugs their depleted cars to charge? Not counting all those house electrical appliances?
Reinforce a power grid who was planned, build and deployed without electric cars taken in account will be expensive, as in money, time resources and qualified workers.
As in Germany someone from a electrical company ran a simulation for supporting a hypothetical surge in electrical consumption.
The numbers floored even the cancelar…Reality and physics are real pain in the back
Wind and solar… Yes, but the power grid has a initial deployment cost. It will be a slow ROI, and not everyone is willing to invest and do it properly.
The future is hydrogen powered cars. Japan knows that so their already have launched some models and learn from their mistakes with those models. But I may be so wrong. I hope so, but math and physics just doesn’t care about whisful thinking.
