This week on the Electrek Podcast, we discuss the most popular news in the world of sustainable transport and energy, including Elon Musk saying that Tesla will move away from selling cars, Musk throwing some cold water on a Model S and X refresh, a Model 3 road trip, and more.
The Electrek Podcast is me, Fred Lambert, editor-in-chief of Electrek, and Seth Weintraub, founder and publisher of Electrek and the 9to5 network, discussing all our top stories of the week while taking questions from our readers and highlighting the most insightful comments on the site.

The show is live every Wednesday at 4pm ET on Electrek’s Youtube channel. As a reminder we’ll have an accompanying post, like this one, on the site with an embedded link to the live stream. Head to the Youtube channel to get your questions and comments in.
