Future electric cars won’t have them and most drivers now prefer an automatic transmission. But manufacturers still cater to those die-hard fans, who like to enjoy the ‘real’ experience of driving, pedals and all!

As much as we would all love to have perfect driving conditions to enjoy the road all the time, that’s never the case. Thankfully, most automakers have thought of that and spend some time testing their vehicles in less than perfect conditions to make sure you can have the drive you need when you head out on the road, regardless of the conditions you’ll find.
It wasn’t too long ago that electric cars were only offered as underpowered and tiny vehicles that required a massive amount of compromise on your part in order to drive a vehicle that could be plugged in.

While it’s not real surprise that the Volkswagen diesel scandal will have an adverse effect on the vehicles they produce, this financial disaster for the brand is actually going to affect more of Volkswagen Group that first was announced. The fact that Volkswagen Group is comprised of twelve different brands gives it a massive reach and the ability to pool money when needed to ensure these brands are able to stay active and vibrant in the marketplace. When news of this scandal broke, Volkswagen Group began to figure out where they could get the money from to handle the scandal that was in front of them with an original estimate of nearly $46 billion that would be needed to handle the costs.
