The British company Lucas Industries plc (now part of ZF) did have a reputation for unreliable automotive electrical systems in the mid 20th century. Some jokes about Lucas include:Ha, made me think of British cars - didn't they build a reputation of unreliable electronics? Going BEV will take that to a who new level
More of a joke comment before I get anyone upset, I'm sure modern electronics on British cars are much improved.
