CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

The auto industry is in the midst of a huge shift toward electrification as more and more manufacturers dipping their toes into the green energy market. We’ve seen plenty of electric cars break into the market along with exciting EV concepts that have proposed some pretty incredible features, but last week, we turned it around to you: what does the average person want out of their EV?

We got some pretty great answers, and we’ve thrown together a list. Maybe one day soon we’ll start checking off each of these boxes.

Charge Me Up (HiMyNameIsJayOnceAgain)

I think this is pretty fair. Please don’t have as many different charging stations as there are phone chargers.

Yes, yes, and yes.

Make It Modifiable (VoltRon)

A fair request.
