Energy crisis could cut Europe's car output nearly 40% - S&P Global Mobility
Auto forecaster S&P Global Mobility warned on Tuesday that, under a worst case scenario, Europe's energy crisis could cut its car production by close to 40%, or more than 1 million vehicles, per quarter through the end of 2023.

Personally, I didn’t see what angle there would be for Russia to actually invade Ukraine.

can we have some more positive predictions of yours? I’m starting to worry that EU can catch heatwave this winter

oh look, my groopie’s back

Aw, so cute of you to notice my absence, step-dr. Strange. Be honest, didn’t you miss me?

Yeah I really missed the random noise generator.

Good, there are already too many.

“With energy prices in Europe skyrocketing… a harsh winter could place certain automotive sectors at risk of being unable to keep their production lines running,” the report said.

Maybe we should focus on, I dunno, keeping people warm instead of building cars?

That is what’s happening. The manufacturing sector (not just cars but steel and chemicals as well) are the first to be rationed or cut off from gas to keep enough left for electricity generation and heating. Many companies have already reduced or entirely stopped their production due to increasing gas costs.

How will this affect buses?

Prices will skyrocket probably since those are operating on capitalist principles too.

presumably more public transit will be needed with less cars

Public transit doesn’t run on perpetuum mobile is my point.

This community exists as a sister community/copycat community to the r/fuckcars subreddit.

This community exists for the following reasons:

  • to raise awareness around the dangers, inefficiencies and injustice that can come from car dependence.
  • to allow a place to discuss and promote more healthy transport methods and ways of living.

You can find the Matrix chat room for this community here.


  1. Be nice to each other. Being aggressive or inflammatory towards other users will get you banned. Name calling or obvious trolling falls under that. Hate cars, hate the system, but not people. While some drivers definitely deserve some hate, most of them didn’t choose car-centric life out of free will.

  2. No bigotry or hate. Racism, transphobia, misogyny, ableism, homophobia, chauvinism, fat-shaming, body-shaming, stigmatization of people experiencing homeless or substance users, etc. are not tolerated. Don’t use slurs. You can laugh at someone’s fragile masculinity without associating it with their body. The correlation between car-culture and body weight is not an excuse for fat-shaming.

  3. Stay on-topic. Submissions should be on-topic to the externalities of car culture in urban development and communities globally. Posting about alternatives to cars and car culture is fine. Don’t post literal car fucking.

  4. No traffic violence. Do not post depictions of traffic violence. NSFW or NSFL posts are not allowed. Gawking at crashes is not allowed. Be respectful to people who are a victim of traffic violence or otherwise traumatized by it. News articles about crashes and statistics about traffic violence are allowed. Glorifying traffic violence will get you banned.

  5. No reposts. Before sharing, check if your post isn’t a repost. Reposts that add something new are fine. Reposts that are sharing content from somewhere else are fine too.

  6. No misinformation. Masks and vaccines save lives during a pandemic, climate change is real and anthropogenic - and denial of these and other established facts will get you banned. False or highly speculative titles will get your post deleted.

  7. No harassment. Posts that (may) cause harassment, dogpiling or brigading, intentionally or not, will be removed. Please do not post screenshots containing uncensored usernames. Actual harassment, dogpiling or brigading is a bannable offence.

Please report posts and comments that violate our rules.
