Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Friday 17th August edition of EV News Daily. It’s Martyn Lee here with the news you need to know about electric cars and the move towards sustainable transport.


I want to say a heartfelt thank you to the 61 patrons of this podcast whose generosity means I get to keep making this show, which aims to entertain and inform thousands of listeners every day about a brighter future.










Mark Buckingham who is KiwiAudio has sent me three pics of the new Hyundai Kona EV in New Zealand. Well the first two actually, a red one and the familiar turquoise colour.


Glen Mason talking about his Hyundai KONA delivery: “Afternoon Martyn. Just thought I’d give you an update on my Kona delivery. My car is in the country and should be with me in the next 7-10 days so I assume beginning of September for the new reg.  Can’t wait!  Just need my Zappi installed now.. 10th September confirmed for pickup. Same as everyone else, based on forum posts. To me it looks like Hyundai want everyone in first two shipments to receive on the same day. Makes sense, better for publicity.”
