It's a mockup, so I think you won't see the airbag hatch. Passenger side has one that opens from a little hatch on top of the hatch, seems easy enough to mirror that on the driver's side.No steering wheel airbag? What a hoot!
A Checker Manhattan was the only cab that would allow “piling into”. Two does not make a pile. Five does.The Bolt cabin was designed to be an urban taxi. As an AV, passengers would pile into the rear first, because of its ample head/foot room. Only if there were more than two would anyone sit up front.
Yes they did! I think someone needs to make a new documentary:Wall Street has tagged Tesla as the ultimate market disruptor in the auto industry. Could it be they’re overlooking the company that was first to deliver an affordable 200+ mile EV, and will be testing the next generation of AVs in 2019?
a laptop accelerated by an airbag sounds like the beginning of a bad day ehA commenter on InsideEVs made a great point: there should be work surfaces/trays in the front so you can get stuff done while commuting.
I'm guessing a sudden crash would be bad with a tray down in front of your mid section, similar to how airlines tell you to put your trays up when there's really bad turbulence.

To be fair, the documentary cited many reasons why the EV died, not just big bad oil.WI think someone needs to make a new documentary:
Who SAVED the Electric Car?
But that's not as sexy as a Big Oil conspiracy movie so I'm guessing we won't see that.
Laptop to face might be better than some of the Takata airbags that fire birdshot at your face. Now I have a mental image of a mini Cheney wearing an orange hunting vest, hanging out in the airbag compartment.a laptop accelerated by an airbag sounds like the beginning of a bad day eh I doubt crashes would happen as much as they do now, but with non-AV vehicles around you for at least a decade, i'd prefer manual controls still and not incent people to completely ignore the road just yet.
I'll be happy when it gets here, but I think during the transition we as a collective species aren't ready to just ignore the road.
