Thought of the Day: Leading by Example (Nikki, May 14, 2014)

Nikki responds to Mark’s thoughts on rapid charging etiquette, and wonders if business owners should be leading by example and driving electric?

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.

    Would just have to agree on the definition of the word “need”. Also the “need” for a special agreed upon etiquette or a set of rules seems to be a burden for adopting plugins. There is a market solution for managing scarcity, maybe we should use that.

    As for plugging in when one needs the charge. Pluginamerica has a nice EV card for it at that has been used for over a decade since the GM EV-1 days…nnnLeading by example, I know of a former boss who is now on the board of an EV related company who drives a Model S. So, there are those out there. Then again, California is not really the norm for the “eco” things.
