2. All-electric or self-driving cars?

Use petrol, gas or diesel vehicles, avoid fully electric ones.
Hybrids can be cautiously considered. 

 

Practicality, common sense and less individualism are important driving forces behind people's decisions about transportation.

Most people do not want less freedom: less range, longer recharge-times, more planned obsolescence. They find driving their own vehicles less tiring than supervising them. Thus, self-driving, all-electric vehicles are simply not attractive enough. Most of us will prefer the old freedoms we used to have. Look for older cars, preferably from the years before 1989. Do not jump on new bandwagons...
