A tangent we should have when we're shouting about robots in cars and new forms of energy is other simple stuff to improve transportation. A lot of people think micromobility is a battery powered scooter but it's also bike sharing, e-assist bikes and multi-mode transport. Confession: I'm between having doubts and not a fan on the electric scooters as they are now. I'm a total fan of bike share, the commuter e-bikes, e-bike sharing systems and the combine bike with car and bus. I know @chris m. has posted about e-bike use but I don't know if that's a pleasure or transportation thing. For work and life I'm often carrying a bicycle with a car. At times I can see myself buying a first tier e-assist commuter bike before replacing my car with a BEV. One thing that might make all this less silly is my metro area is all in on this. We have good bike/ped corridors, bike racks on busses, and places where you can park an automobile and then go. The counters on the main bike routes show they are in essence keeping thousands of cars out of the rush hour. The automakers are in on this but I don't know if their efforts will fly. As an example, the Ford e-bike is silly if you compare it to what good bike companies sell at the same price. The Harley-Davidson prototypes look much better than the Ford.
