Cleantech Talk #12: Edmunds Research Error, Bosch + Tesla, Early EV Adopters, & EV Benefits For Teenagers

In this week’s second episode of Cleantech Talk, Chris DeMorro and I kick off the show by talking about an Edmunds study released on Earth Day that illogically bunched plug-in electric cars with conventional hybrids (and bashed them). I get a little worked up.

We also talk about why electric cars are great first cars for teenagers, and why they love them. We go from there to another fun one about a Bosch autopilot video that features a Tesla Model S. And we close with a discussion about some electric car early adopters (true early adopters) who have been driving electric for at least a decade. Thanks to our friends at Plug In America for that one.

You can listen to the podcast in the embedded player below, on SoundCloud, on iTunes, or by downloading the podcast and then listening.
