#36 The Return of Danny Cooper

6 Oct , 2010  

Danny Cooper makes a triumphal, post baby return to What Drives Us this week and in turn almost stays awake for the entire show. Panelists Tony Schaefer and Jason Holder add their usual insightful and entertaining commentary on a number of subjects including a survey of current and future hybrids, two-wheeled EVs, Fisker getting ahead of itself and much, much more.

This week’s show notes:

White House MAY BE trying set CAFE standards as high as 62MPG but, wait for it, in 2025, no idea what 2112 CAFE standards will be (other than having a cool soundtrack by Rush)

Fisker sorta announces six new cars
