7: Spare Tires
The “Donut,” as drivers like to call it, is perhaps the most dreaded part of car ownership. You don’t want to be the one who is stuck on the side of the highway changing a tire. Fortunately, automakers are working on a way to eliminate the spare tire altogether. The next generation of cars is going to incorporate run-flat tires.
These advanced tires, while being more expensive, are a much more feasible option for drivers who go the distance. Traditional spare tires also take up additional room in the trunk space, which is now going to be filled by the massive battery. Spare tires will probably be the one thing in our vehicles that drivers don’t miss.
