Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Saturday 29th December 2018. It’s Martyn Lee here and here’s the fourth part of your 2018 in review.

 

Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too.

 

And possibly the final patron of 2018 takes us to 150 supporters. It’s such a milestone I can’t begin to say how grateful I am to everyone who supports this podcast, and they allow me to devote more time to it than I would otherwise.  So welcome new Executive Producer PETE GLASS to the roll call of heroes.

One thought on “29 Dec 2018 | 2018’s EV Highlights: Part 4 July and August”
  1. Hey Martin, so much content as usual, I think my favourite part of the ev group in 2018 is watching the ev world smashing all of the internal combustion records. Everything from pikes peak to goodwood! A very close second is Tesla firmly sticking two fingers up to anyone that doubted them! Watch this space! Great show and long may it continue into 2019 as the world wakes up to a more Enviromental friendly way of transporting stuff around!
