Porsche announces full electrification by 2030; a mini review of the Jaguar I-Pace first drive; and I share my full review of Tesla’s latest Autopilot behind the wheel of a fully loaded Model S P100D.
Today! The CA DMV allows testing and deployment of FULLY driverless cars on its roads; two Tesla owners post videos testing and recreating the recent Model X crash (yes, really); a(nother) Chinese EV startup is born; and more.
We discuss Tesla’s plummeting stock as it relates to Model 3 production woes; an astonishing new EV SUV with 1000hp; and a Cruise Automation fully autonomous car getting ticketed on the streets of San Francisco.
The one where we talk about Jaguar partnering up with Waymo; a blind spot in Uber’s lidar system potentially causing the tragic accident in Arizona; and a horrific Model X accident in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lidar maker is “baffled” by Uber autonomous test vehicle; Tesla starts rolling out its new mapping software; Porsche declares that it is NOT benchmarking the Tesla Model S. Right.
I make the controversial claim that if we as society are ok with allowing cell phones in cars, then it must be the case that we’re ok with autonomous cars, too. Also, BMW announces two new products in its nascent “i” product range, the i4 and iX3 SAV.
We’ll discuss the risk vs benefit of autonomous cars; the difficulty of getting drivers’ licenses in the future; how autonomous cars will gradually phase out human-driven cars on streets and freeways; and a favor to ask of you!).
The one where we analyze Uber’s tragic accident that killed a pedestrian; also, details on what may be the next big thing — Chrysler! — with their surprise roll out of the Portal Concept (formerly, the SM-1).
BREAKING NEWS: An autonomous Uber has struck and killed a pedestrian in Tempe Arizona; we discuss responsibility and liability in cases of autonomous car accidents; and finally, what’s the solution to “bad actors,” criminals holding up autonomous cars?
The one where we discuss details on Tesla’s recent Autopilot update (that were not yet available for yesterday’s episode); we go into more details about GM’s production 2019 Cruise AV fully driverless (no steering wheel!) vehicle; and get a look into Ford’s $11B plans for autonomous, hybrid, and electric vehicles.
