It won't necessarily be boring. It's still too early to tell but bottom end economy cars may all be slow and will lack the only interesting thing left - gears. Everything else can benefit from an instant, uninterrupted wave of torque and better torque vectoring than we've ever seen before. I'm really looking forward to off road vehicles with independent motors - I believe the Rivian R1T will have these and it's what allows its insane tank turns.Do not remind me that the future will be extremely boring.
Doesn't mean you can't have a hydrogen IC engine burbling away behind you as a generator, although this would probably be rare I can see it on some supercars. Using green energy doesn't necessarily mean you can't waste it as we do now.
