Interesting take on the electrification topic

As an avid car enthusiast, I am always interested in how the masses embrace the different vehicle options available for both, transportation and leisure. Cars are an important part of many societies, and many people don’t understand how important it is to ensure that customers are happy with their purchase, but also the responsibility on manufacturing safe vehicles. Safety for the passengers, in the unfortunate case of accidents, as well as making them better for the environment.

If I remember correctly, as part of the conversation, I believe there was a concern regarding the electric grid being able to handle total electrification of the transportation industry. I think this is a very important topic, and one that should be properly researched as well as informed to the public. Multiple independent studies have already been able to prove that not only most modern energy infrastructures can handle this, but also that the impact will be negligible towards existing facilities. Especially in the United States Some incremental changes may need to be made in some regions, but the infrastructure is mostly there already.

It’s a bit concerning that someone says they love diesel, like Lauren did, because there is nothing good about it. It’s dirty, noisy and plain old tech that should be replaced permanently as soon as possible.

I used to be hands-on with high performance engines and transmission during my grassroots racing years, but the new tech is so much better with electric cars, that I can’t see myself going back to an internal combustion engine, any time in the near future.

Cheers!

Really good/Muy bueno

3 experts talking cars. Journalists who actually test the cars they are talking about. And from our perspective (consumers). Great!
