Danny and Russell take on the show as a duo this week. Here’s what they talked about:
Bolt begins oozing out
“The next step in the process is to begin taking orders for the 2017 Bolt. Rumors suggest that could happen as early as this week, but only in the states of California and Oregon for now.
There are plans to go nationwide, but that’s not expected to happen until 2017.”
“Clearly, it is kinda ridiculous now to say that an automaker with 1,000-plus workers is working on nothing at all. So, let’s drop that vaporware status and ready ourselves for some big reveals coming from Faraday soon –“
After a brief hiatus we return to talk about EVs for almost the entire show.
VW might not sell diesels in US anymore.
