May 22, 2022 – Everybody loves powerful cars, although not everybody has the skills required to tame a supercar. Not everybody is aware of that, and faced with the question, few people would admit to being a lousy or even average driver.
Looking at Tesla’s lineup, the Model 3 RWD, with a 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) acceleration time of 5.8 seconds. Kia EV6, in its least powerful version, makes 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in 6.2 seconds. Electric trucks are more or less the same, with the slowest of them making 0-60 in under 5 seconds. This is the level of performance you would expect from a high-end sportscar.
Even if everybody has incredible driving skills today, this will not last. Eyesight diminishes with age, the field of view narrows, and the reaction times get longer. There will be a growing discrepancy between driving skills and car performance, leading to more problems.
