"An intelligent, cheap & green car is for sale in 2025. This car meets various requirements:
Intelligent functions (like a self-drive possibility and connecting to other cars) do not cause any irritation or unsafety.The car does not run on any fossil fuel. Electric is possible, if 1 charge allows for a several hundred miles drive.
It is not a hybrid; the car must be sustainable throughout the total life cycle.
It is lightweight (hybrid technology is heavy).
It is affordable in a regular lease budget.
It is sporty, which means straight-line speed and being able to corner fast.
Driving emotion! The user must feel how the car reacts to the road and the environment."
This is a public bet between futurist Marcel Bullinga and engineer Thomas Kelly. Marcel thinks this car is available in 2025, Kelly thinks it is available only long after 2025.
Freedom of Mobility, Wouter van Gessel, @Stichtingfrom says NO: "We don't want to hand over power to the car"
