From Singing Electric Cars to Single-Seat Helicopters

 - Nov 19, 2017
The Ottoman Empire was one of the great global powers through to the turn of the 20th century, but the November 2017 auto trends show that the modern auto man is surprisingly similar to the Ottomans of centuries gone by. Like the fallen Central European dynasty, driving is significantly different today from what it was in the past, and like the Tanzimat reforms enacted by the Ottomans, auto men and women are adapting vehicles to modern changes.

Recent technological advancements in the world of driving have pushed engineers to tackle problems that have never come up in the past. For example, modern electric vehicles are just as powerful and far more energy efficient than their gas-powered counterparts, but they also propel themselves nearly silently thanks to the electric motors they use. In order to reduce the danger of silent vehicles, Nissan has released 'Canto' as part of its Intelligent Mobility system; the chime noise rings at regular intervals to alert people to the presence of the vehicle.
