From Transport Evolved.
*Editorial* – Due to Kate producing this week’s show (not Nikki) we had to film this a little earlier than usual. This means some major news stories (such as Ford also pushing back EV plans) hasn’t been included. We’ll be covering that next week.
Welcome to today’s show!
This week, GM gave more details on just how much it’s delaying its EV transition, Tesla gives more details about ongoing legal troubles, and a tiny car that’s selling really well.
These stories, and many more on today’s news roundup show of everything going on in the world of electric vehicles, clean transportation and clean energy!
