Replacing Conventional Cars With Electric Cars Is Misguided
Electric cars and automated vehicles (AVs) are obstacles to the transition to livable cities. Any role they may have in future cities should be subject to intense scrutiny and wide-scale public debate.
If every combustion engine automobile is simply replaced with an electric one, then very little has been done to achieve a new urban paradigm. Streets clogged with electric vehicles are still clogged, unpleasant, and dangerous streets. AV transport systems should also not be introduced on a wide scale without serious scrutiny and public debate, something that did not happen when cars first appeared.
