Infrastructure Week, part 2: David Patterson
As infrastructure continues, this episode features a great conversation with David Patterson who was deeply involved in the Mitsubishi I-Miev program, worked with Nissan and Chademo. A long time advocate for electric charging clears up a lot of the confusion surrounding charging systems and what each has to offer.
This week we spend the entire show discussing EV marketing and what works and what doesn’t. We look at Matthew Teske’s Project Loveday video, a commercial for Tesla. Learn more about Matthew at http://www.teskedesign.com
Patrick Connor’s feature; Russell’s Rant:
Russell rants about linkbait featuring Tesla and cites more than a dozen examples of stories that exist simply for a click.
He also talks about the Prius Prime door.
Patrick talked about why the Tesla Model 3 probably isn’t shipping in July and why that is just fine.
A very special episode with three fantastic guests. We started out digging into how fans and enthusiasts affect cars and car companies and went everywhere along the way. Special guests, Alex Roy, Edward Niedermeyer and Matthew Teske.
If we just avoid going political
Russell’s happy news
