    Is BMW back, only this time electric? We discuss in WhichEV Podcast Episode 27

    Is BMW back, only this time electric? We discuss in WhichEV Podcast Episode 27

    With the price announcements of the i4, and iX, is BMW committed to electrification again, and will it succeed? James and Stef discuss the possibilities. The i3 is continuing to please, and the iX3 is imminent, meaning electrification could be the next Neue Klasse for BMW, leading the company to a renewed future where it continues to dominate the luxury car market. We also consider whether Ford is making a similar play with the F-150 and Mustang Mach E.

    Could Volkswagen really be the 'next Tesla'? We discuss in WhichEV Podcast Episode 26

    Could Volkswagen really be the 'next Tesla'? We discuss in WhichEV Podcast Episode 26

    Could Volkswagen really challenge Tesla in the electric vehicle market? Or is the ID.4 GTX too limited to compete with the Model Y? Does Tesla have too many technological advantages? Maybe Mercedes will pose a better challenge with the EQS. James and Stef get a bit too Model X-rated as they discuss the pros and cons in the latest WhichEV podcast. We also consider the value of VW's MEB platform, which can be found in the ID.4, Skoda Enyaq iV, and even Audi's Q4 and Q4 Sportback. Warburton's new electric bread delivery truck makes us say "crumbs", too.

    Is electric motor racing any good? WhichEV Podcast Episode 25

    Is electric motor racing any good? WhichEV Podcast Episode 25

    After the first Extreme E competition in Saudi Arabia, James and Stef discuss whether electric motor racing is actually any good, in the latest episode of the WhichEV podcast. They also ask whether the UK plug-in grant reduction was really such a bad thing, considering how many manufacturers have dropped their prices as a result, including Citroen, Peugeot, Kia, Hyundai, Nissan, BMW and even Tesla. Stef also explains how he went to Hawaii to research electric vehicles, not swim with turtles and hang out at the beach.

    UK Government Plug-In Grant Reduction and VW Power Day - WhichEV Podcast 24

    UK Government Plug-In Grant Reduction and VW Power Day - WhichEV Podcast 24

    With the UK government reducing the plug-in electric grant and the maximum price eligible, James and Stef discuss whether this is going to stall the EV revolution, and whether Volkswagen's Power Day will have a more positive effect, particularly now Audi is no longer developing new fossil fuel engines. But with lots of great new EVs arriving this year, including the Ioniq 5, Kia EV6 and MG Marvel, as well as Gridserve investing in the Electric Highway to fix UK motorway charging, is the momentum now too great to fail? Stef is also back from his long, woke shower.
