        Looks like we're gonna go through this horrible teething phase only to realise gasoline was fine all along, then do the same thing with hydrogen

      Darwin award there. Should sterilize the parent for not teaching the kid how to escape before locking him in the hot car.

      On the other hand, my car has child "safety" (trapping) doors.

        They all have physical latches so you can't get locked into them. Being trapped in a car because you are too stupid to find the latch is a skill issue not an issue with the car.

        tbf the child wasn't even 2 yet

          leaving a child in the car is the only way police will look for it and prosecute the thieves. so if you care more about the Hyundai than your child it's a valid theft recovery strategy. Should probably put the car in dog mode to keep the kid from dying of heat tho

        regulatory agencies have been fumbling the ball hard on EVs
        >doors that trap passengers inside
        >brake lights that don’t light up despite heavy deceleration due to regen braking
        >haptic (not even physical) buttons as turn signals instead of stalks (unusable on a roundabout)

          When I tested, I drove a Tesla for the fun. The turn signals were annoying as frick. There was never the same spot because the wheel moved around.
          Then the buttons, like you said, are haptic. So you can't feel for them because you'll press the button. So you must look down to see where they are to press one.
          And the single pedal driving mode is very different. The deceleration is heavy. The mode uses all regen breaking. If you press the brake pedal the car uses the normal brake.

      >the kid should have been smart enough
      Utterly illiterate
      Toddlers being able to open their own door is a safety hazard, that's why we have child locks
      The parent was standing outside with the "key" unable to unlock the car because the battery was dead, which is why it's relevant that there aren't any physical keys
      It's funny that there are enough glaring safety issues with the doors that it's possible to be confused about which one is being discussed

    To be fair this is more on Tesla for being le quirky and futuristic than anything inherent to an electric powertrain.

    Fake news.
    MG4s have a physical key blade hidden inside the keyfob you can pop out, and there is a cover on the door handle you can pop off to reveal a physical lock

      why not just have only a physical handle, instead of both an unreliable electronic handle and a backup physical handle? Seems needlessly complicated and unsafe
