I blame the Tesla Model 3 for starting this because of its huge tablet and no instruments in front of the driver. However, now other automakers appear to be following this style. The Volkswagen Space Vizzion concept puts a tiny rectangle in front of the driver to display the speed and charge level, and the Ford Mach-E has a similar layout. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but needing to parse out the details on a huge screen seems a lot more distracting than simply looking down and seeing everything I need in one place.
