Detroit Drives Forward For The Car Of The Future Detroit Drives Forward For The Car Of The Future | On Point with Tom Ashbrook Public radio asks Detroit about the future of transportation—they respond saying they are going to lead in hardware, software, and service. The interviewer and two call-in Tesla owners ttogether make the point that Detroit has not yet demonstrated leadership and then sow doubt that they will. Other callers opine that no one should, but that's for another topic. Interesting piece. Glad to see Tesla owners taking up some of the airtime.
