The Car of the Future

We've written a lot about the quickening pace of innovation in automotive electronics design. And you'll recall the centerpiece of the first part of the Drive for Innovation was an all-electric Chevy Volt, which took us around North America.

If you're in automotive electronics design, you're no doubt working on a very important and very cool piece of the overall puzzle of the car of the future. This interesting infographic gives you a bigger picture. Take a look.

    Need to add fourth important property. Lower in initial cost and lower in cost of ownership for 10 years.

    With many benefits that the cars of the future will bring us, some of the interesting things that we will loose are –

    – The thrill of driving on highways

    – The felling that the whole power is in your hands

    – Outsmarting other drivers on the road by your traffic negotiating skills

    – The joy of maintain you own car on Sundays with grease on all your dress


    So whether you are in the office , at home or in a car makes not much difference.

    So where do you go for the change of scene?

    You walk somewhere so you get a good feel for the thrill. Then you drive there to compare…

    @prabhakar – Maybe I'm old school, but I think I would have a difficult time giving up some of those things!

    I often wonder if electric cars wil truly take off.  For example Nissan make the Leaf in the UK and instead of selling 50k per year as originally planned they are only running at 7k.  That is why the new “street” price is now £13k versus list of £30k.

    @flyingscot, we are all still coming to embrace the electric cars either by law or by choice.
