Apparently its a passive system.  It'll be interesting to see exactly how it works, and how accurate it is..

There's going be a huge market in updating older cars in the coming years.

Yep, what with all the electric shite. Saw a story the other day that I forgot to post, where a tesla had run out of juice on the exit or entry ramp to westfield shopping centre, blocking it for hours. xD

Yep. Companies like Lotus with a hand-built limited production run assembly process (though seems they're moving to a more modern production line and retraining or getting shut of the people with the craftsmanship skills for the latest models now they're chinese owned) missed a trick not doing similar to the following to cash in on the heritage while providing a more modern chasis (using SVA to get around the latest bollocks like speed limiters and brethalysers), where they can charge a premium:

Many of the older cars are better looking than the computer designed boxy overstyled crap these days. At least with leccy ones the abomination of a grill on the latest BMWs and Audis will be gone. xD

Buy those future classics while they're cheap, get two so have spares. B|

Just avoid any of the modern cars where manufacturer coding is required on replacement components forcing people to pay for expensive OEM parts. 9_9

I'm sure some spare parts resellers like scrap yards or ebay sellers will be stock piling some of the more desirable older cars while they're cheap. It's how the old school mechanics will make a mint when it's all moved to plug in and replace componentised assembly even more than it already is.

They were lucky, they usually set themselves on fire in tantrum.

Just hope you're not stuck inside after a crash:

Mother-of-five, 41, is killed afteer crashing Tesla crash: Firefighters say vehicle's battery kept reigniting making it hard to stop the blaze

 

Fuck that. I'm staying good old safe petrol, though the eco loons will make it hard for those not complying with the script:

Climate activists say they have deflated tyres on "luxury" vehicles parked in Glasgow, to raise awareness of carbon emissions during COP26.

A number of SUVs in the city's upmarket West End were left with flyers that branded them a "climate violation".

 

Society really is pulling itself apart over covid and now climate. Bunch of C's. xD
