In this special episode we’re going to be following up on something we talked about back in episode 4. The mainstream media.

We talked in that podcast about the fact that mainstream media tends to not be too serious about EVs at the moment.

They regularly send one of their journalists out with an EV and ask him or her to do a really long journey to see if EVs can do it.

More often than not the resulting article ‘proves’ that EVs aren’t ready for the mainstream. But when you look at the detail you find one or two things that don’t quite add up.

See to balance the situation here's the article I wrote about 'Driving an ICE vehicle' to show how one-sided media coverage can be.
