Update on naming: We are changing the way episodes are named going forward. Previously, the episode was named after the month of news the show was covering. However, we now understand that this might have made the episode seem like an older episode than it actually was. This is why the May episode is missing.
This episode, Jim and Alex sit down to discuss the latest EV and charging news. This month, we talk about our time at the SMMT test day, the new Tesla Model 2, Volvo EX30 and the LWB VW ID.Buzz.
