@TheCrudMan  http://www.schrothracing.com/engineering I'm pretty sure Takata infuse similar technology into their FIA approved 4 point harnesses. I don't see a problem with using them on the road. You'll submarine to a degree in a 3 point too.

I actually quite like this. Still looks small and fun, interior is reasonably neat with the essential large tacho, proper gearbox and nice hugging seats. I'd be more than happy to snap one up if the engine specs are right.

Not so keen on the ridiculous camber, I can't help but think they would look so much better without it yet would still get the same attention. Other than that these cars are all amazing.

@skawars  also at the moment you can go to scrap yards to pick up parts and fit them to your car, would you trust an electric motor or battery (probably the reason its in the scrap yard in the first place) without testing it? Granted there is risk in all parts from merchants but I'm sure you can sort of see were I'm coming from.

@guReMcO  Other companies still want to pull in hundreds of millions from the tech they already have before they spend it on R&D. That's why you see a t5 turbo motor in the new focus st, an engine that's been around for nearly 20 years already in volvos. Because R&D costs a bomb.

@w3rrd @robzor @JakWhite  exactly. Home remapping is a sure fire way to bust your car for those who don't know what their doing. Whereas before you could just adjust a screw on the carb and the cars back to normal. I don't doubt cars of the future are amazing at what they do. But they sure will cost us an arm and a leg to not be part of the cookie cutter society.

@skawars @JakWhite  For sure, but what I mean is as the batteries get older, they won't hold charge as well, especially in cold climates. This is like having a hole in your petrol tank rather than lower mpg. No doubt people do modify their cars with newer parts from revised models, but my reference is that at the moment almost any joe blogs can "modify" his/her car on their drive way without the need for expensive diagnostic computers to make sure it runs right. With electric motor swap outs, the number of people likely to electrocute themselves or not earth properly will go up if not done correctly. The Haynes manuals words of "disconnect the battery" really will come back to haunt us haha!

@NYporkdept  So far I've read two long term tests of the car and at around 25,000miles they've needed their drivelines replacing and have had problems with the screen on the console (which controls opening of the charger flap) good job the cars are still under warranty to be honest.

@NYporkdept @JakWhite  in theory, electric cars haven't been around long enough yet to know how long these motors will last. And I'm sure the electric motors in this car alone are definitely big bucks to replace. If they weren't the car wouldn't be anywhere near as expensive as it is. We will see, it was the same with the smart phone and touch screens, they were mega bucks when they first came out, now you can get a phone with touch screen for less than £60.

That is, hoping that batteries have an international design, not per car, otherwise the car could become useless quite quickly considering at the moment cars are redesigned every few years and technology advances. Where as, petrol is petrol. It works no matter how old your car is. Its an interesting subject, hopefully manufacturers will allow you to keep your car by creating retrofit kits so you can put newer technology batteries in as/when they are developed.

If RC cars are anything to go by, parts stores will be full of upmarket speed controllers, motors, batteries, gearing etc.

With electric cars, comes the idea that the police will have control of your car and can shut it down when they want and have electronically monitored roads where-by you pass a speed limit sign and the car will not go over that speed until the next sign. The inherently non-home maintainable cars of the future don't excite me at the moment even if they do have a few cool touches, which no doubt in 30 years won't work. I don't think making cars like this is sustainable yet as they are very expensive and still seen as throw away. I really don't envy the guy who has to separate all the electrical components to recycle this car, or the cost of a motor when it breaks, at the moment you can replace small relatively in-expensive parts to fix or prolong a cars life that little bit more. Hopefully with development, the prices will come down and people will become more aware of how to service and modify these cars to be faster at home.

My dad recently leased the little evoque, and he had a similar epiphany in it, didn't want to give it back at all, but at £44,000 the spec he had was a little expensive. (his 2011 Navara isn't as nice)
