Not long now and then all the EV verses ICE debate will be superfluous. With autonomous yes it will surely EV, but only in a white goods level. Savour every moment we have being the nut behind the wheel while we can. At least the H&S folks will be happy once the biggest danger is removed from the driving equation. :ugeek:

Pretty cool, but considering the state of our roads I can't see it taking off any time soon in the UK.

"Thirty years" A mere blink of the eye. I'll only be ninety and a menace on the roads so maybe autonomous will be everyone else's savour lol :shock:
