Wouldn’t it be
absolutely FANTASTIC if you could drive to work every day and NOT have to stop
developing a range of ‘self-filling’ cars that would never need a visit to the
garage. Fancy that!
queuing, no more slipping on diesel in your fancy work shoes, no more succumbing
to the temptation of a bar of Dairy Milk on the way to the till.
How would it
your tank is close to empty, your car would send a message via smartphone to a
mobile fuel supplier to come and fill it up. The supplier would have a one-off
code to open your fuel cap – safety first, obviously. So you could park your
car, go to work, and by the time you’re back, your tank would be full!
BUT as always,
there’s a catch. Volvo never ‘officially’ talk about innovations and simply said
“maybe” when asked about the fuel idea, so it looks like we may be waiting a
little longer before our cars start talking to each other and ‘fuelling-up’
behind our backs.
But still, you have to admire their ability to KEEP coming up with ridiculously clever ideas – someone has to do it, eh? Or did they realise that mobile services are the future. And we are not talking 'phones! Mobile sign writing has never been so popular. So if Volvo think soon fuel supply will be mobile, that makes us ridiculously happy. With a business that is here to stay.
trip to the station - in the next decade it could be just a supermarket!
