ATLANTA (CNN) -- The concept cars shown at the Paris motor show this week might present a glimpse of shape of things to come, but across the Atlantic a car is being developed that is radically reinventing not just the car itself but also our relationship with the automobile. (Full story)

Does the privately-owned car have a place in the cities of the future?

A replacble car "unit" should be offered. When batteries etc are low, drive into a depot and for a fee, simply drive away with a fully charged "unit".
Sach, Melborne (Oct. 16)

To a lot of people the joy of having your own "toy" or personal means of transportation will still be appealing.
Lawal, Nigeria (Oct. 15)

Yes to some extend. However I think that the expansion of metro systems in cities around the world (the type of trains that don't need a driver), plus an expansion of the number of stops and operating hours 24/7, would prove the privately-owned car to be reduncdant.
Maria Tsomanis, Copenhagen (Oct. 11)

Privately owned cars do have a place in the future but only if all of them are environmentally-friendly.
