Right Now, Fully Self-Driving Electric Cars Are A Drain!

We are all aware that the future of driving seems to be not driving at all. Electric, self-driving cars appear to be what we are all destined to be behind the wheel of in the future. Those in the know have one item on their minds regarding these self-driving entities: They use a lot of power! If you calculate the kilowatts it currently takes for a car to do all the tasks a human does, you end up with a usage of 2-4 kilowatts. That’s like running 50-100 laptops in the trunk!

So, of course, your concern is that your car will run out of charge and leave you stranded. Not to worry! Until efficiency catches up, more self-drivers will probably be hybrids, virtually guaranteeing that your ride will not suddenly stop on you. If you are concerned about your current ride stopping on you for any reason, come in and see us!
