Thought for the Day: Living in the Future (26 Feb, 2014)

Mark replies to Nikki’s thoughts from yesterday on car ownership models and talks about living in the future and the possible implications.

Unlike our other shows, Thought of the Day is our chance to muse on one big story in the news each day, using it as a spring board to explore other topics, sometimes even outside of the Transport Evolved universe. Every weekday, Nikki and Mark will take it in turns to explore a story that catches our eye, developing a back and forth conversation between Transport Evolved’s two regular hosts.

As with our Quick Charge series, our Thought of the Day will be recorded very simply on a single smartphone, but then quickly edited together using the jump cut edit style popular with many YouTube vlogs. We think this style complements our other shows and offers us a different way to share our thoughts with you, our readers and viewers.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Thumbs up on the communal “property” sharing comment! It does not work, it has been tried at a high cost.

    I want an i3 but with no dog (REX, it’s a dog’s name). For me the REX compromises an exciting car (of course, until we get real-life feedback from owners we won’t know if that is so).

    Great Topic Mark!! Just to drive my clean car (LEAF), is awesome. Spent the whole day yesterday driving around Miami teaching CPR at different locations, stopping at a Rapid Charging Station and having a 20 mins charge and lunch and then back on the road. We are living in an amazing time.

    Yes, the future has finally arrived. It’s a shame all this technology has not given us any more leisure time!
