You claim off the insurance company. Same as when you have water damage/fire/theft at home.

Fact is - there should be far fewer accidents with driverless cars.

310 is better than I get out of either “family car” at home at the moment! B7 RS4 and Golf Gti - both around 250 per tank. But I guess the point is that the battery can be easily topped up at home...

I wouldn’t want one as my only car
