Driving an ICE car now feels quite agricultural.
Sitting in traffic I notice the fumes from other vehicles. I can often see the plumes, as well as smell them if it's a diesel. I imagine how transformed our urban areas would be if everyone was driving electric. It was only when we banned smoking in indoor public places that we started to realise how pervasive and awful the pollution was. Very quickly we not only accepted the change but wholeheartedly supported it, and felt annoyed if someone broke the new rules of behaviour. Once the change to electric really takes hold we will surely wonder why we didn't do it sooner!
Hardly using the brakes, because this means I won't have to pay for new pads / discs and I won't have to pay for the alloys to be refurbished when the brake dust eats them. Mind that pothole
Strangely, I enjoy driving this car so much, I have SLOWED DOWN on my average trips. I guess I want to prolong the experience. I'm using less than 190 watt hours per mile by doing so. I have perfected the art of pulling over and letting people roar by in their primitive fire burning oil drippers.Collect mine tomorrow so intrigued to know reasons beyond being very very fast?
The amount of people that stare as if I’m riding through town on a unicorn!
Sitting in a queue of traffic the start stop and keeping in lane on its own is just brilliant.
Isn't that just one of the best features? I love it too. You have to stay awake if you are in line for a road junction though. Make sure you don't just take off following right behind the car in front.
Correct mate. EAP / AP is like an 8 year old in Elementary school Year 3. It knows what to do most of the time, but needs Constant Adult (meaning driver-operator) supervision.
Thus occasionally it gets distracted ................ SQUIRREL !!!.. and takes an unexpected corrective action when none is needed. An example of his is "phantom braking" which can happen when lighting conditions do a drastic change like pavement changing colour or driving under an overpass on a bright sunny day.
Food for thought!
