In this episode titled, ‘EV for EVeryone?’ contributing editor Jordan O’Brien (proud owner of an electric vehicle) attempts to knock editor Claire Fletcher (owner of decidedly non-electric vehicle) off the proverbial EV fence. Will he succeed? Give us a listen and find out. You never know, you might even learn something yourself.
Despite the adoption of electric vehicles featuring as a key part of the UK government’s 10-Point-Plan to ‘build back greener from the pandemic’, there is still widespread misinformation, and general trepidation when it comes to making the switch from an ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicle, to an electric one. After all, most of us have grown up with the former.
That said, with a ban on petrol and diesel vehicles coming into place as of 2030 (meaning you will no longer be able to buy a new ICE vehicle) people are going to have to wrap their heads round the prospect of EV’s pretty damn quick, lest they buy second hand until the ICE vehicle well runs dry.
From range anxiety to exploding batteries, EV’s still get a pretty bad wrap in the mainstream media, which is doing nothing to help quash public concern, or the planet for that matter.
But, as human beings, generally, we don’t like change, but change doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. In this episode, we go over many of the common misconceptions surrounding electric vehicles, ask the questions we actually want to know the answers to, and find out what it’s really like to own an EV day to day from someone that knows.
As always, you can get in touch with us with your feedback, suggestions for discussion and general comments via our dedicated podcast email firstname.lastname@example.org, it’d be great to know if any petrol heads have been swayed (even slightly).
