    Volvo have the right idea using a subscription based model to market. Makes it far more likely the average joe will give it a go instead of asking $100k upfront on untested technology.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I think you are confusing a rehashing of a PCP car finance product for a Swedish/Chinese/Indian, whatever, car with an innovative engineering product made by an American company.

    They are Indian.
    Oddly that is why I put 'Designed here' as that is where the money is.

    BTW they are currently produced in Austria.

    Don't all Swedish cars have to have their lights on at all times? That'll drain the batteries. Top tip, if you have to buy an electric car, don't buy Swedish.
