Fun to drive? LMFAO. Can I have some of the Kool-Aid you‘ve been drinking please.

Firstly - while certain electric cars may have incredibly impressive acceleration, they are generally thought by people who enjoy driving (see next point) to be quite dull to drive. Heavy equals bad. Electric cars are heavy. Lack of noise equals bad.

Secondly - The vast majority of people don‘t care about driving being fun. Cars are seen as appliances to get one from A to B.

Thirdly - By 2030 I believe we will be at a stage where automated driving is viable if not standard. No one will care if the car is fun to drive or not, because they won‘t be doing the driving.

I say all of that as someone who‘s next car purchase is likely to be electric - the new Porsche Macan when available. Because it will fill our utilitarian needs, not because it‘s fun.
Oh the Macan....that car with half the range of a Model X?
