Thought of the Day: Politics and Electric Cars (Nikki, March 19, 2014)

Nikki responds to Mark’s thoughts from yesterday on electric cars in films and on TV, and ponders why electric cars are so politically divisive.  

Unlike our other shows, Thought of the Day is our chance to muse on one big story in the news each day, using it as a spring board to explore other topics, sometimes even outside of the Transport Evolved universe. Every weekday, Nikki and Mark will take it in turns to explore a story that catches our eye, developing a back and forth conversation between Transport Evolved’s two regular hosts.

As with our Quick Charge series, our Thought of the Day will be recorded very simply on a single smartphone, but then quickly edited together using the jump cut edit style popular with many YouTube vlogs. We think this style complements our other shows and offers us a different way to share our thoughts with you, our readers and viewers.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    A plug-in Prius is featured in the “Under the Dome” series. Not sure if associating EVs as something to fall back on in a post apocalyptic scenario is very helpful though. Generally I predict a limited future for EVs in movies and series. They just don’t generate the right sort of dramatic noises to feed the Dolby surround sound track.
