So if the battery is dead how do you get in to pop the cover (probably also electric) to open the cover for the charge unit? Or put it in neutral to have it towed?
I'm pretty sure I would not like to live in a world in which I would never be offended.

Out of curiosity I priced up the X in AUD, entry level $146k, top of the range with all the bits $283k, ouch!
I like the looks of the X, the entry level would suit me very nicely but as I bought a Mazda CX5 for $26k (admittedly it was 2nd hand but less than 10k on the speedo) I think I'll just hang on to the extra $120k.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
I Am Not Affiliated With Marc Clifton
I assure you I am in no way affiliated with Marc Clifton but I know an award-winning article when I read it.
Further, my article is in the running for that same contest, but Marc's article is far better and you can tell he put loads of work into it. Please take a few seconds and vote for his article.
It is fantastic and I am stunned by how much work absolutely had to go into that.
A lot of it was research and googling how to do things. Once I got the basics handled, I started adding more pieces, but the implementation was really just a view-controller. At that point, I started writing the article because I didn't want to forget all the lessons I'd learned up to that.
The irony was, I hadn't added connection points yet, figuring I could do that after writing about the basics. It was then that I realized the V-C pattern was not going to handle it, and I needed a true MVC model. Besides, I had kludges I wasn't happy with. Oi! So right in the middle of the article, I switch to a true MVC pattern and ended up refactoring almost all the code. Hence the section "Refactoring the Prototype to use an MVC Pattern."
It was an interesting decision point. Do I rewrite the article at that point, starting with an MVC pattern, or do I let the prototype remain and explain the switch to MVC. I decided to let it remain as is and talk about refactoring it to an MVC pattern, figuring it would be educational and besides, I don't mind showing my dirty laundry, as it were. The reader gets to see more of the development process that way rather than just being presented with a finished product.
