All real data on this subject is classified and will never be published. There is no objective information about it. All other sources are picked to corroborate what individuals already have chosen to believe. So the people with the strongest opinions on the matter are the least to be trusted on the subject. I have my opinion, and tend to lean toward preparing for the worst case situation as I do for most possible threats. Any less seems to me to be gambling in ignorance with my survival at stake.

if you live in an area with snow, what will it matter? nobody will be plowing the roads .. so, you won't be able to get anywhere unless you have a snowmobile that can withstand an EMP … If an EMP was to come as an attack, my guess is it would not take place during the nice weather …

Ok, a bit of info here; as others have said, an EMP will absolutely destroy modern cars. The tests were stopped as soon as ANY car showed signs of damage, because the commission couldn't afford to buy them all.

Hear it for yourself from the leader of said commission. He say they absolutely could have destroyed them- here's the link that I don't think anyone has posted.

Took me a bit of digging to find it again. I'd recommend anyone interested in EMP give this a listen. It's an interview with Dr. Peter Vincent Pry and another member of the EMP commission.

At minute 47:30+
Cars were borrowed and could NOT be fully tested. As soon as something was starting to fail, they stopped. They couldn't afford to buy 25 cars/trucks to see them tested to the full EMP levels.

Around minute 50, a summed up quote is; 'Since we saw cars failing at surprisingly low levels of an EMP, the commission knew that we could have destroyed many cars, but couldn't afford it.'

Is rather chilling to be completely honest.

It matters because as preppers we have snowplows, 4x4s, snowmachines, generators, stored fuel, etc.

There would be a monumental difference to a prepper wether an EMP destroyed small electronics or not. Many of us have already internalized grid resources and would barely even notice an EMP if it only effected the grid.

best way to protect a new car from EMP is to buy an old car....

Get a bicycle. Totally EMP proof.

That was an interesting read, thanks for posting those.

Really mixed on what conclusions to draw. On the one hand the official report shows that the cars that were turned off had no effects all the way up to the maximum testing exposure. On the other hand, those were cars from 2002. 18 years later, the electronics are very different and could be more vulnerable.

The effects of EMP on equipment not connected to a long conductor will be debated until the cows come home. That or when people are finally willing to accept the fact that the debate on direct coupling won't be decided until the event actually happens. If you are of the belief that unconnected devices will be destroyed by EMP, you need to realize that it is simply not practical to "protect" a complex system like a new car unless you're going to completely disassemble it, bring it up to military EMP resistance standards, then reassemble it.
