MINI Cooper, the car company whose entire brand revolves around the appeal of spirited spunky motoring, said that they’re dropping the manual transmission for all of their cars after 2024. And before you ask – yes – that includes performance models like the S and John Cooper Works. So in other words: MINI Cooper is now selling all the inconvenience of a small car, at a moderately high price… now with a fraction of their previous driving engagement.
Ladies & gentleman, this is how car companies ultimately plan to lure people into accepting & buying electric vehicles. By making their beloved cars progressively so shit… that EVs start to look decent by comparison lol.
