Comments: Autonomous Cars

A maddening aspect is that guest Benedict Evans of Andreessen Horowitz is a Londoner and has a very un-American expectation of automotive use. "Well, it will be ok to have a car with only a 100-mile range for those who only drive 50 miles per week.

Don't let me scare you off -- still some very interesting things.

Per WEEK? Even a Londoner could only make it to and from the Tube station on that driving budget.

I'm listening a second time (not to check, but I listen and work and get 95% coverage in two listens).

The first part is electric cars and second is autonomous. A serious discussion on charging economics ensues, but he is seriously complacent on range anxiety. I think that comes from being a Londoner and not considering the car a necessity like us "sceptics."
