Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Saturday 25th 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.


And occasionally on a Saturday I like to pause the news for a day and bring you an interview or behind the scenes look at the world around electric transport.


Today we’re heading to Yorkshire in England, to talk about converting classic cars to EV power. eDub Trips started off converting their first van from a petrol powered classic VW camper, to a state of the art EV. Combining iconic, classic styling with cutting-edge electric technology. You get that desirable camper lifestyle with no fuel costs and zero emissions. Featuring the best selling battery packs from Nissan, their conversions give the classic camper many decades of life, well beyond what a simple engine upgrade will give you.

  1. Thank you for your show and all the work you put into it. It is great to finally have a daily podcast that addresses the EV industry. I’ve spent the last three weeks catching up on all the past episodes, and am now up to date. Wow, what an amazing effort must go into researching, writing and producing this show each day. Hats off to you!

    From sunny Costa Rica, where I drive to work each day in my imported, 2nd-hand Nissan Leaf, I send warmest greetings and heartfelt thanks!
