Top Automotive Blunders Of 2016 Include Some EV Moments – Videos
With 2016 now pretty much complete, Automotive News is putting out its special year end reports and “top” moment recaps.
As part of those highlights (or lowlights), the magazine is also listing what it feels was the “top blunders” of 2016.
All the major happenings are listed – such as the Dieselgate scandal, but also some minor ones in connection to plug-in vehicles, including:
- the great Model X Falcon Wing door vs Cucumber circus from the Summer and,
- the LeEco LeSEE Concept’s very public failure to launch/autonomously drive on stage for founder Jia Yueting (also of Faraday Future fame) last October…leaving the Chinese billionaire to run out on stage (complete with dry ice effect) by himself.
Video (below): Check out the LeEco LeeSee live launch party (without the car) from the 1:20:05 mark, complete with no EV, a running CEO and an awkward transition from announcer to founder Jia Yueting
