re. Range anxiety.

Apparently there's no way to find a proper answer to this. If you ask the general, non-EV driving public, you'll find that range anxiety is a big fear - made even bigger by all the news sources TELLING us that it is a big deal.  If you ask the EV-driving crowd, you'll quickly find that range anxiety really is no big deal. But of course THAT answer is discounted because we EV drivers are all early adopters, and we're OK with adapting to the shorter range... So it turns out that the unexperienced and ignorant once again have the more reliable answer.  :sigh:

Hi Bo & Ryan,

Thanks for the good show once again. Just a note, one website quote the price of the VW 1L car at 20 to 30,000 euros. Quite a bit more than $600.

Hi Bo & Ryan,

While the VW 1 liter car may not kill the ev cars, this one might make both gas & electric cars obsolete: The first commercially available jetpack.

Just
a thought on Toyota recalls: they have recently been 'campaigning' on TV with regards to the safety of their cars. May be they also need to revise their product slogan a little bit which is "TOYOTA - moving forward".

RE: TOYOTA - moving forward. LOL  TOYOTA - moving forward with great acceleration.

Very funny video, Bo!  You and Kim just seem to have that on-screen chemistry- like Brad and Angelina- or Tracy and Hepburn- or Laurel and Hardy;-)
