Said Cars are 4.2 meters long, 1.75 meters wide and 1.5 meters tall, weigh 900 kilograms and have three wheels (two in front, one in the back) with a rounded body, two doors and a hatchback. They can comfortably seat four adult humans and come with air condition and wifi standard. They have above average crash survival due some clever internal structural stuff and the advanced alloys, polymers and composites of it's construction. It is powered by a pair of electric motors which draw power from 50kg of high density batteries (made from some fairly common elements), which are hold 20MJ of power per kilogram and can be recharged about 8,000 times before wearing out. It's top speed is limited to 225km/h. Each car also has WIFI systems, a high end speaker and a self driving mode. Basically if you don't feel like operating the vehicle, you can just put in a destination and the car will drive you there along the most efficient root. In case of theft it will drive itself back to it's owner if a request is given. They are robust and reliable with an estimated average lifespan of 30 years and require little maintenance over their lifespan.
The aliens offer to set up three factories the US, Japan and China, Two factories in the United Kingdom, France, India, Mexico and Nigeria and one factory in Canada, Peru, Brazil, Australia, Poland and Russia, adding up to 25 factories in total. Each factory takes up about 160,000 square meters can produce 512 cars a day every day day and night along with spare parts kids. Production is mostly automated, with component fabricators and robotic workers under the supervision of an Artificial Intelligence, which also handles processing orders and distributing cars (basically by having them Drive to their adress). All that needs to be done on the human end is that raw materials (ingots of steel, basic chemicals for polymers, etc) are fed in. Each is capable of maintaining itself. There are four conditions that the aliens have for these factories which roughly corresponds with their outlooks on matters.
- Each factory must be owned by the Government of the country that it is owned by. If it is sold to a private firm the AI will shut it down.
- The price of each car (new) is set at $10,000 USD, and can be adjusted for inflation that will go directly to the National Budget of the nation operating them. A special feature is in place which means that each citizen can only buy one car from the factory every 3 years. Cars can be sold used.
- 25% of all cars made are to be issued. Basically any adult citizen with a driver's license of the nations listed who does not not own a car can go to the local equivalent of a DMV, fill out some forms, pay $5 and be put on a list based on a first come first serve basis. Every forth car made will go to someone which has been put on a Waiting List. Each person can only be on the List once at a time and gets bumped off if they acquire an automobile by other means.
- Each Car will have the formal coal of arms/great seal of their country as the logo on the front, back and steering wheel.
What happens and what do you do?
