Technically Mirrors are far superior to cameras

I suspect not. Replaced by small LCD (OLED) screens on the interior of the door.
What most people don't stop to consider is that aside from the cost aspect a Mirror has superior performance to the best camera system in the world...

1) Much higher resolution, nearly as good as your own eye is capable of, compared to the best high def camera/screen

2) doesn't use any power, very important on an electric car

3) Projects a 3D image...You can more accurately judge distance, with a screen is it a small truck up close or a bigger one farther away

4) You can change the point of view by shifting your head...with a screen shifting your head does nothing.

For these reasons, I would never want a camera/screen in place of a mirror. Maybe in addition to, but never instead of.
