QUESTION OF THE WEEK WITH EMOBILITYNORWAY.COM

 

A recent survey – which I highly questioned and disagreed with – claimed 1 in 5 EV owners went back to piston power.  I have never heard anything like a 20% rate of EV drivers being unhappy with electric. Would you ever go back? Yes, No and tell me why!

 

Email me your thoughts and I’ll read them out on Sunday – hello@evnewsdaily.com

 

It would mean a lot if you could take 2mins to leave a quick review on whichever platform you download the podcast.
