LOL anti-car? Really? What defines a car is being cluttered with buttons?Because a horse and a car are completely different things. These aren't. They're both still CARS. Just with different drivetrains.
Just because it has a START button?? Really?
Because there are times when you want to turn the headlights on manually. And sometimes quickly, without fumbling through the screen menu while driving when your eyes are supposed to be on the road.
Because sometimes someone else needs to drive the car. And they need to manually adjust the mirrors.
Because again, you many not be the only one that drives the car. You're not going to spend 10 minutes setting up a full phone profile for your brother when he drives your car home for you, or the valet, or the auto mechanic.
It's sounding like you really want a Tesla, or some other futuristic car that's as anti-car as you can get. Sorry, that's not the Mach-e. It's still a car, with car features 99% of drivers can relate to. And I'm thankful for that because I wouldn't be very interested if they threw everything familiar to us about cars out the window just to be anti-car.
I've never let someone else drive any of my cars, and that will never change. I buy drivers' cars, for me, the driver.
I've never, ever touched the headlight switch when the car is moving - because it's in "auto."
I've never, ever touched the mirror switch after the first day I purchased a car.
I've never, ever rolled the rear windows down on purpose - I love VW's new "REAR" button toggle that allowed them to get rid of the back row window switches.
Minimize, streamline. No distraction from the drive itself.
