Thought of the Day: Nick Clegg and Electric Cars (Mark, May 7, 2014)

Mark responds to Nikki’s thoughts from yesterday on what’s in a good EV name and talks about the UK deputy prime minster who says that EVs aren’t for him even after announcing a £500 million investment into them.

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.

    I think he should get a Model S if he can afford it (and why not, he’s a politician). Yes, it might be more luxurious than what he wants to be seen in, but I think that ‘I drive an EV because I back up my words with deeds’ is a more powerful message than ‘I drive an expensive car’

      I think I would agree with that.
