This is interesting.
EV purveyor Canoo – which used to be Evelozcity – has announced all of its EVs will be available on a subscription-only basis.
Meaning: You don’t own the car; you pay for the ride. Which means you never stop paying.
Canoo describes itself as a “boutique California EV brand” and plans to offer EV rides beginning in 2021.
And not just here. Also in China – where automated EVs and ride-sharing is being pushed from the top down by the oligarchy which runs the joint, for the same reason it is impressing upon the Chinese people a “social credit” scheme. Both are mechanisms by which to control the people – and far more effectively than the rough old-style manner of using blatant physical force.
This is Brave New World-style coercion. You are nudged into The Future.
Canoo will offer “subscribers” the “opportunity” to meatsack around in any of four “lifestyle” EVs.
None of which you’ll ever own – or even control.
Looking forward to this, anyone?
