Interesting for several years

Very informative, even for an electric car driver outside of the US, especially as also covers home-related information. Perhaps should be less positive about the potential benefits of driverless cars; whilst there are some, there are also negatives as “Motorists could be stuck in congestion nearly twice as bad as current levels if self-driving cars become commonplace,” according to a recent report from the
Department for Transport in Britain.

Top news and comment

Informed and fair coverage of the EV space. Mostly North America focused but of interest to me as a European also. They know the industry and they know how to present it for the interested consumer.

Kippaboat ,

Great, just great.

Proper journalism and sound opinion. Been listening to this show for years, occasionally subjecting my family to it on road trips (we all sing along to Fred’s ‘Welcome to this week’s…’ and compete to mispronounce Seth’s surname).

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to the cause. It’s great to see the EV world finally gain momentum around you.

Cheers!
