    How Electric Vehicles Could End Car Ownership as We Know It; ‘Rideables’ are likely to speed up adoption of self-driving technology, turn transportation into a service

    Christopher Mims, January 15, 2017 (Wall Street Journal)

    “…[W]ith the convergence of better battery technology, lighter materials and smaller, more powerful electric motors, entirely new kinds of transportation have bloomed. The electric powertrain, unlike that of the internal combustion engine, scales smoothly from tiny to huge…[and] enables two other revolutions: self-driving technology, and the shift from vehicle ownership to transportation as a service…[T]hese forces have the potential to transform our way of life as much as Ford Motor Co.’s Model T did over a century ago. As the convenience and safety of electric, autonomous ride-hailing services appeals increasingly to the masses, the nature of network optimization means it will probably make sense for the Ubers and Lyfts of the world to cater to our needs with everything from a one-seater to a party barge…Enormous] problems of both infrastructure and battery technology have yet to be solved…[But makers of electric vehicles] are already overcoming big obstacles…” click here for more
