Show #700

 

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 17th February 2020. It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story to save you time.

 

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.

 

I was hoping to announce 2 million podcast listens on toady’s show but we’re 30k away.

 

Great podcast to stay informed

I’ve been listening for a while. Martyn does a wonderful “world-class” job of bringing us the news everyday. If you live in the EV world, or are planning to, this podcast should be at the top of your playlist.

I’ve been listening to Martyn’s show for well over a year now. I don’t know how I found it, but he has made me so knowledgeable about EV’s now, I find myself giving insight to my employer, who happens to be a large US electric utility. Keep up the great work Martyn, you are informing and changing mindsets about EV’s!

NEW QUESTION OF THE WEEK

The MYEV.com Question Of The Week…

 

I’m thinking of driving to Italy, 1028 miles and 17 hours. Channel Tunnel to France, skirt the bottom of Switzerland, northern Italy past Milan and onto Pisa. What’s the longest EV road trip you’ve done or WOULD you do?
