Select Car Leasing crunched the numbers and found with the introduction of connected cars in 2022, the annual average commute will reduce by 25%, equating to 55.5 hours less commuting every year.
Drivers will also benefit from increased safety features such as repair hazard warnings as your car will be able to “listen” to waveforms or vibrations, analyse them and upload them to a cloud-based system that warns you when a maintenance issue is going to occur, leading to greater reliability, reduced time in garages and lower maintenance costs with more severe damage being avoided.
The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association CEOs of Europe’s car makers met last week with the European Commission Vice-President for the European Green Deal, Frans Timmermans, for a constructive discussion on climate change and CO2 emissions.
“EU policy makers and the auto industry share the European Green Deal’s vision of climate neutrality by 2050,” stated Oliver Zipse, ACEA President and CEO of BMW, “But the Green Deal needs to live up to its name; we need a real ‘deal’ between our industry and EU governments to achieve the overarching goal of lowering the CO2 emissions of the transport sector. On this path, every available technology needs to play its role.”
Like all indoor British/UK attractions the British Motor Museum will not be allowed to open its doors and welcome visitors this Easter, but they have not let this deter them! Instead they have put together a programme of activities and events that everyone can enjoy – bringing the Museum to people’s homes.
Throughout April families can enjoy their own 6 minute taster tour of the Museum and meet some of the cars and characters that they can see when the Museum reopens.
