The electric car manufacturer temporarily increased the effect of Tesla cars, which were equipped with a block on their battery output.
Drivers could then drive for about 48 km longer, on a fully charged battery.
- Tesla´s effort is a good example on what you can achieve when the manufacturer can communicate with their cars. Imagine how important those extra kilometres can be during a natural disaster.
As completely self-autonomous cars become a reality, Runde thinks internet connections can change how we behave in traffic.
In the long term, I believe we will get a new “life on board”, what we do while the car takes care of the driving.
In the next decade there will be a lot of changes. Soon we might be doing our shopping online, while our car drives us home from work.
There is also a lot of talk about DAB radio, but with SIM-cards in every car we will have the option to listen to internet radio, which has good reception and gives us greater possibilities, says Runde.
