In the latest episode of “The Drive with Alan Taylor”, Taylor welcomes automotive journalist BJ Killeen and chats about how Tesla will no longer be sending a mobile charging cable with their cars now. If you need one you will have to purchase it for an extra $400, and that’s because they are finding out that most Tesla owners use the charging stations chord instead.
Next up Lauren Fix, editor in-chief for Car Coach Reports, discusses with Alan that she was at the New York Auto show and got to speak with the CEO of BMW, who explained that BMW will not be going all electric.
Ed Justice Jr., president and CEO of Justice Brothers, Inc., joins Alan next. He shares an article from Automotive News about installing wires in the highway that will allow electric vehicles to charge as they drive.
Steven Cole Smith, automotive journalist for Autoweek, Automobile Magazine, and Grassroots Motorsports, closes the show with Alan and shares a story of an incident that happen in his hometown that left him bewildered.
