What I find interesting is how most manufacturers of e-cars haven’t diverged in design from the bodywork of their petrol and diesel predecessors. While I can understand this in terms of not needing to radically alter the production of bodywork, * it also seems thatin the future these cars might be viewed as nostalgic or retro.
I recently posted something on another thread which might seem to contradict the above, but it was specifically about the design of so-called e-supercars and how the factors that determine their appearance were unlikely to change greatly. However, I don’t think this should necessarily be the case with small/ish electric cars, they still have vastly improved acceleration over that of their ancestors and will need upgraded tires, wheels and brakes. I thnk many purchasers will suddenly find themselves with a family car that has the performance of an ado’s hot hatch!
I’d love to switch to an ecar, butu nfortunately the current price of our present e-equivalent begins at 69,000€ (with plastic, so-called ‘simulcuir’ upholstery) consequently, it’ll be a few years before that happens.
I’m still learning about this whole ecar phenomenon and would love to receive thoughts, opinions or counter arguments.
