Recently there was a report, or rather, a petition in which it asked the NHTSA to investigate Tesla over multiple reports of cars suddenly accelerating forwards by themselves. If true, this would be incredibly alarming as it could lead to all manner of accidents, and in worst case scenarios, even death.
Modern cars have definitely gotten a lot smarter compared to cars back in the day, where they are now equipped with computers and sensors that are supposed to make the driving experience better. However, sometimes the addition of technology can make things worse and more complicated.
The problem with electric cars is that their motors tend to run considerably quieter compared to regular car motors. This can create a problem for pedestrians who might not otherwise be able to hear an electric car driving up behind them, especially if they have a pair of headphones on. However, Tesla might have an answer to that problem.
Earlier this year, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had hinted that video streaming platforms such as Netflix and YouTube would soon be coming to Tesla vehicles.

Only time will tell how well the Cybertruck will do, but in the meantime, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk decided to show off what […]
As some of you might have learnt over the weekend, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk took the wraps off a brand new electric vehicle that the company is working on, the Cybertruck.

Companies like Apple tend to be pretty self-sufficient where they try to make everything themselves. This makes a lot of sense because it means that they won’t have to rely on others, in the event that there is a dispute, and that they can also better control the quality of their components and also get it to do what they want it to do.
Due to the fact that electric cars rely on an electric motor, it tends to be a lot more quiet compared to regulars. While it is good for noise pollution, it’s not necessarily the safest for pedestrians who might not notice that a car could be behind them or coming around the corner, which is why more carmakers are starting to introduce fake car engine sounds to help warn people […]
