Are car mak­ers celling out?

Autocar - - YOUR VIEWS -

The ar­ti­cle by Rachel Burgess on com­pany ex­ec­u­tives’ agen­das on fuel cell tech­nol­ogy (News, 17 Jan­uary) was both in­ter­est­ing and dis­turb­ing in equal mea­sure.

It would seem their pri­or­ity is to bom­bard us with largely point­less high tech­nol­ogy, whether we want it or not. Fuel cells will only hap­pen if forced by leg­is­la­tion, not by de­mand.

Should the listed top­ics that ex­ec­u­tives think most im­por­tant be­come re­al­ity, the con­cept of car own­er­ship will de­cline to such an ex­tent that or­di­nary cus­tomers will lose in­ter­est and the in­dus­try will col­lapse just like the horse-and-cart in­dus­try col­lapsed a cen­tury ago.
