Thought of the Day: Car Tax (Mark, May 9, 2014)

Mark responds to Nikki’s thoughts from yesterday on what updates he’d like from a Tesla Model S software update and talks about car tax and EV purchase incentives.

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.

    The other think I would love to see on the telsa is a legal speed limit mode, set the cruise control to 70 and have it slow down if I pass into a 50 zone. Now I am sure there are issues as you are reliant on the sat nav maps and that may not be updated (who is responsible), a simple solution, its always the driver 🙂
