July 31st, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

A few days ago, we published an article about Dynamic Parcel Distribution (DPD), a major UK delivery company, hitting its 2020 electric vehicle (EV) adoption target 5 months early.

Leading into our first ever virtual trade show, which is tomorrow, Wednesday, July 29, I just interviewed Matt Pressman, cofounder and president of EV Annex, about the company's deep history making Tesla aftermarket products, insights from that work, how Tesla vehicles have changed over time, and some of Matt's favorite products
