Charging Status is back! After a short absence, the UK and Ireland focused EV podcast is back with a new co-host. I am now joined by Jim Starling from the YouTube channel, DefinitelyNotAGuru and we discuss the latest EV and charging news from the past month. As mentioned in the February episode, James Bilsbrough can no longer take part in the show due to now working in the EV industry. In this episode, we talk about our upcoming visit to Fully Charged South 2023, the new E-Transit Courier, Jonny Smith’s video on the new Morris JE van and for the new Jim’s Drives segment, we talk about the GWM Ora Funky Cat and the Genesis GV70 Electrifed & GV60.
