This week we dig down deep on the 2016 New York Auto Show. We tackle and take apart the new Prius Prime, the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan, the Hyundai Ioniq in all its forms, the Chevy Bolt and talk about Tesla reservations for the Model 3 as well as their proposed valet supercharger system. All that and more, tonight…
This week we speculate how the Nevada legislature can so stupid, visit the Chicago Auto Show *and* the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto and much more. Patrick Connor, Mark Coughlan, Paul Guzyk, Tony Schaefer and Russell Frost dive deep into world of crazy lawmakers and cars.
And funny enough, as I was posting this show this morning, this tweet from actor, Mark Ruffalo showed up…

This week Paul joins Tony, Russell & Danny on the slow road to hell that is the 2016 Prius reveal. It’s so slow that we might have an autonomous Google car in production first. Or a Porsche Tesla Model S competitor. Or an Audi e-tron Tesla Model S competitor. Or a Hyundai Prius-fighter.
Or maybe not. Listen in for thoughts on those cars announced at Frankfurt and more from the 2016 Prius reveal in this week’s What Drives Us.
This week Evan, Tony, Patrick and Russell discuss…
