Especially, how to diagram a vehicle technologically in an impressive way. I have written many books on the subject. “A layman’s Guide to Automobile Maintenance” is the first book that is published.

These forces are giving rise to four disruptive technology-driven trends in the automotive sector: diverse mobility, autonomous driving, electrification, and connectivity. And yes!
