If there were any validity to one side being chosen over the other for such reasons as I have heard so far then we should all have our car steering wheels on the right side and enter from the left. Rubbish! It is what it is by coincidence or the desire to standardize.
The reasons proposed for having the drivetrain on the right are very convincing. It should be noted that the right is the correct side for a steering wheel and that there were some sporty cars built which only had a door on the left.
