Election 2016 was the biggest farce I ever saw since the Emmys.
Some prior Emmy's?

I thought it was the most titanic struggle I've lived to witness so far. An ancient Egyptian deity of Chaos rises up from nowhere and strikes down the State apparatus of mind control. With jokes.

I'd say more but this ain't The Lounge.

One candidate was disliked more than the other. Too bad we couldn't have a choice of who I like more, or better yet I don't even care because the power is at the local level.

whew! I'm not in the pictures. From the comments:

DL:Idiotic.

Once group-share autonomous EVs hit the market there will be no demand for a vehicle like this (as if there were such a demand to begin with).
The FUV supposedly is 'autonomous-ready'. It seems like that would require power steering. There is a smart-phone cradle in the handlebar, for Enlighten or Über or whatever.

Most of the comments about it being neither a tuk-tuk or a tiny door-slammer ignore the architecture with the low center of gravity, [supposedly] well-tuned suspension and opportunity for torque-vectoring in software. I have yet to drive one, but I sat in one and grabbed the rear-passenger handles and rocked it back and forth, I can fill in the acceleration and deceleration in my head. I am curious about turn-in and other dynamical things that would come out in a short course with orange cones.

What could be better than that?

edit:
The same article on a different site has a video of the folding back seat. It's embedded so you'd have to scroll to the bottom: https://electric-bmw.blogspot.com/20...livery-of.html

Is that cool or what?

Group share autonomous EV is primarily an urban system. There will always be a mix of vehicles for personal or commercial use.
