EV Podcast: MG ZS EV vs Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, is it time to upgrade to full electric?
This is a follow on from a recent video review I did after driving MG's new ZS EV. Listeners will know I drive Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid which fits my family needs in terms of space but it is not fully electric. Something I struggle with. Putting Dino juice in my car is something that just feels wrong. I'm still on the fence .......But hope you find my explanation why interesting.

Love Mat C from MC3 Engineering
Two pioneers of NZs EV community, two completely different backgrounds, collaboration is the key point, always an entertaining and educational listen,
Keep the up the Charge!
Basically one long advert for Chargenet, however..
30% Mrs West saying how wonderful all her friends are, 30% Mrs West saying how wonderful she herself is, 20% Chargenet propaganda, 10% getting basic facts about vehicles wrong, and then 10% really interesting insights into the EV world. Could be doing a lot better for the movement. I will keep listening for the good 10%.
