Waymo’s Driverless minivan : The transition from manual to automated driving will be slow and complicated, and probably messy. But when it does come, it will completely transform how we get around. Riding in a Level 4 driverless vehicle was as close to a glimpse of the future of mobility as I’ve ever seen. We are still decades away from a reality in which these types of vehicles are able to roam freely through our cities and communities without restrictions.

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER PHEV
Mitsubishi’s newest model 2018 Outlander PHEV has some unique features and style, when you turn it on then this car turns into hybrid mode but only when the battery is full powered.
If you want to rely on it, drive a bit slow and you will trust on its battery life and this may happen until the gasoline engine kicks on and becomes live. In fact you can use the button to turn on the EV mode, in this mode charge to regenerate the most energy back into the battery, or you can use it to save the battery for the best use only, i.e. in case of heavy traffic or in less residential area.
