Thought of the Day: Halo Effect Cars (Nikki, May 20, 2014)

Nikki responds to Mark’s thoughts from yesterday on having the right tools for the right job, and asks if the BMW i3 and Tesla Model S will encourage the adoption of other EVs.

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.

    hi Nikki the top models and use of the technology in racing must increase public awareness but still the biggest factor in the UK for a car like the Leaf or E-up is the price. The Leaf package should have been kept at one great spec/what colour would you like? and that is how the E-up is packaged.nBut, but, but, for “range anxiety” read “price anxiety”nYes those in the know are getting good deals on the Leaf but the list price is the starting price for most people.
