    Its pretty exciting too. With EVs it makes even more sense and hopefully means we can see more competition in the market since it means more modular vehicles (imagine if every steering column could work for every drive train for example).

      You’ve been able to do that for ages. Granted it’s pretty much only with tyres and windscreen wipers for now, but it’s a start!

        Yep, simplyfy, standardize, modularize, repeat, and we might actually get affordable cars (or anything really) again.

        Its not something encumbant car manufacturing would be trying to push for outside of their own production lines though.
