And this is a *major* #problem with #eu #vehicles - #speed #limiters built into *all* #cars by #default https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/spe.. Imagine for example you need to perform an #overtake - something that can *require* briefly breaking the #speed #limit in order to be done safely. That is just one #example where the ability to be faster is actually #safer ...

This is a pretty cool move by #toyota to #refresh #old #cars to #new #condition after some 10 years have passed: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/busin.. #reuse is much better than #recycle !

Apparently some #bmw #vehicles will be #manufactured without #touchscreens because of the #chip #shortage https://www.theverge.com/2021/11/5/22765.. I say: "good"! #displays in #cars are nothing more than a #distraction - especially as half of them come pre-loaded with some old #android ( #security #risk ) with crap #apps like #facebook and #twitter ...

Wow, a #gang in #yorkshire #uk used a 20k #device #disguised as a #gameboy to #unlock people's #cars and #steal them! https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leed.. Insanely bad, but insanely cool.

I *really* think there is actually a #market for these mini #electric #vehicle designs in the #west - but these tend to sell to #mainland #china only: https://gadgettendency.com/a-modern-elec.. Specifically these little #cars would be great for non- #motorway use, i.e. #local #shopping and/or #deliveries - #school #pickups , etc. I think the market is there if somebody is willing to do the #investment !

Turns out that #toyota gambled heavily on #hydrogen as the #transport #energy of tomorrow and lost out to #ev #cars such as #tesla https://arstechnica.com/cars/2021/07/toy.. I don't believe the #prius #hybrid is entirely a lost cause though, but the fact they are now #lobbying to slowdown the transition to #electric vehicles is a bad move. They should feel very ashamed for that action.
