    Are EV batteries big enough? WhichEV Podcast Season 2 Episode 5

    Do EV batteries need to be bigger, or are they already big enough? In this episode of the WhichEV podcast, James and Stef discuss emerging technologies such as Theion's, which promises to triple the range available for the same size and weight as a battery today.

We also talk about exciting new releases including the Lotus Eletre, Kia EV9, Maseratie Grecale Folgore, Audi A6 Avant e-tron and Cupra Born.
