Do auto companies try and weight those numbers with the complexity of the car's design? 14% is awful no matter how you look at it, but considering that one of the strengths of electric cars and all that minimalist "software does everything" crap is that they're supposed to have LESS parts right, so in theory they should be easier to assemble?

thats what makes tesla so funny: electric cars should be much easier to manufacture than internal combustion cars, and tesla should have a big comparative advantage in manufacturing compared to the old incumbents - but musk has pissed that all away with his overcomplex designs and inability to configure an assembly line

I saw an interview with a super wealthy guy a while back and while he was definitely a shitlord he had one good point that charity should be done anonymously because it's the only way to know you're not doing it for the recognition

what when my nissan's keyfob battery died, i could pull a regular mechanical key out of it to unlock the door, and hold it up to the start button to start my car (i guess there's a backup rfid chip in the key and sensor in the dash?) how is "keyfob battery dead and no internet connection/server down" not a scenario they planned for lol

so the failure mode of the app, which behaves enough like a normal keyfob to get people to treat it like a keyfob, also happens to be the situation where the owner probably can't call for help? that's certainly a new way of endangering people...

giving to a good charity for the recognition is still helping, and applies social pressure to others to chip in, helping to instill a social norm / duty to aid ppl in need

if u fetishize "giving for the right reasons" u are centering the act around the giver not the recipients, which ironically is the wrong reason to give. also, that shitlord was probably a stingy liar hiding behind his bs
