    Porsche Taycan, Electric Vs Hybrid, Rivian, Ford, EV Bikes | #215


    The automotive and technology worlds clash often, but nowhere are the lines of tech and motor company blurred as much as with the rising electric vehicle market. JoshCAR Hollywood Car Consultant, Josh Hancock, joins us to discuss the new Porsche Taycan and whether or not Tesla should be quaking in their boots regarding this vehicle’s release. Then we chat about the public’s lower anxiety over the range of electric vehicles thanks to recent advancements pushing every day EVs above the 250 mile mark and how that affects their market share. Don’t feel left out if you’re a truck guy/gal, because electrification is coming to a full-size pickup near you soon with the announcement of Rivian’s R1T and Ford’s all-electric F-150. These trucks pack a punch, thanks to their electric motors, and provide more torque for towing. Changing topics, we delve into one of the biggest benefits of having an electric vehicle, the low maintenance! Aside from your obvious stuff like tires, brakes, and batteries, there’s pretty much nothing else to worry about as you commute day-to-day. Switching lanes, everybody’s favorite four-wheeled contraptions aren’t the only vehicles getting an electric makeover; tune in to hear about the small, but vibrant market of electric motorcycles, bicycles, and other oddities.
