Apple Electric Car News, Elon’s Tesla Model 3 Range Comments, BYD Gigafactories… (Cleantech Talk #6)

Chris and I had a lot of fun this week running down four hot electric car stories. We had some really interesting updates regarding the Apple electric car and Tesla Model 3 to play with, as well as a huge one from BYD — plans for battery gigafactories that will together essentially match Tesla & Panasonic’s own gigafactory. We also jumped a bit further into BYD’s cars, potential, and latest US news.

As always (since last week, that is), you can listen to this podcast in the following ways:
