Is a car even going to exist?
The pollution in cities is driving to ultimately electric vehicles, public transit, and bikes/scooters. As soon as it becomes viable, the populations of the wealth-creators will move to the cities with the best air quality then all cities will have to match to not financially implode. So that part is inevitable. The only debate is who/when.
The robotic car, self driving, once it gets safe enough will then cause insurance to be higher to drive, and then become illegal to drive. So that is also inevitable, so just debate when.
So we’re all going to end up not in a car with a 12V DC outlet, we’ll be in transport, electric, with USB outlets. I helped my local train operator make decisions and the direction is to USB as it’s cheaper, when we costed it, than to make 110V AC to only have it become USB DC anyway.
I don’t own a car, I bike to the train. I take an Uber, which will eventually become self driving electric as the cities will force it to address air quality.
If we don’t then basically we’re all coughing at a young age and living more cramped with the less land we have with dodgy water quality, intense storms and the insects everywhere.
