Thought of the Day: Right Tool for the Right Job (Mark, May 19, 2014)

Mark responds to Nikki’s thoughts on if we should be trying to travel more lightly to save fuel and talks about using the right tool for the right jobs.

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.

    The Volt is the Swiss Army knife of all tools for me. Yes, it could be better, it could have a longer electric range, a faster AC charger, a more efficient range extender, a bit more space, a better telematics system, and a maker that truly believes in plugins. However it is already surprisingly good and it has met almost all of my needs for over two years now.nnnnIt is unfortunate and sad that most people do not see it this way.
