CCATP #495 – Rod Simmons on Electric Vehicles – Part 1

Ev1In this first of a two-part series on electric vehicles, we’re joined by passionate EV-fanatic Rod Simmons of the SMR Podcast. In part 1, Rod helps us understand the difference between the different types of vehicles from hybrid to plug-in hybrid to plug-in EVs. Rod explains how he analyzes his driving (using Excel and pivot tables) to figure out what kind of an EV he should get. He’ll talk about maximum range vs. how far do you really drive. Stay tuned for part 2 where we’ll talk about specific cars and about some of the autonomous features that you often will find in electric vehicles.

    It sure sounds tempting, doesn’t it Dave? It’s illogical for me though I think because my car has such low mileage and is beautiful so I couldn’t justify it. Since I drive so seldom, self-driving cars may be here before I need a new car!
