Sunday Musing: Would You Pay The Same For less Stuff?

Transport Evolved: Take 2

Earlier this week, we learned that Hyundai is decontenting its IONIQ 5 electric car as parts shortages continue. It’s not the first automaker to do this during COVID-19 or the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Hyundai’s modifications have downgraded the capabilities of its semi-autonomous assistive technologies, and some of its safety tech – yet Hyundai is still charging the same price.

So today, we’ve got a simple question: Would you be willing to pay the same for a car with less tech than one made a few months earlier?
