There's a much bigger question than that: Is that car hackable? Can someone take control of your accelerator and brakes? Or maybe it has a drive-by-wire steering wheel too? That would mean someone can take control over your steering wheel and slam you into a tree just for fun.

Any new car appearing on the market today (whether ICE or electric) should have a warning sticker "Hackable" if the steering wheel is decoupled and controllable by electronics.

With electric cars that's like 90% of the case, while ICE cars have that "feature" reserved only for the more expensive models. Which means that rich fools drive more hackable cars than poor people. Some kind of a social justice, ha?
