What’s setting the stage for future EV growth?

We discuss the latest electrification research as well as some of the fun EV-focused vehicles found during Industry Week.

Last month on this podcast, I spoke with Jason Morgan, editor of Fleet Equipment about the EV advancements we can expect to see in the next few years, the solutions to the biggest issues facing electrification today and what an evolving supply chain means for the consumer world. We had a great time – we laughed, we cried, we sang (at least one of those definitely happened) – and after that episode’s debut we decided we wanted to take things a step further. So… welcome to the first taping of the Amped EV Video Podcast!

Jason is now this podcast’s co-host, here to bring a fresh perspective on what electrification means for trucking and logistics, the yin to the consumer world’s yang, if you will. And, there’s more where this came from beginning in 2022. Double, actually, as we’re bumping up our volume to produce two video podcasts a month.

In this episode, we discuss some of the latest electrification research from NACFE, as well as some of the fun EV-focused vehicles and products found at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas (including Jeep, Electra Meccanica, Hypercraft and Redline Detection).

Watch above to see what is setting the stage for future EV growth.

If you are servicing the brakes or suspension system on a Tesla Model S, you do not need fancy orange gloves or insulated tools. The brake system on the vehicle uses the 12-volt electrical system and not the 400-volt electrical system. Still, it is always a good practice to disconnect the 12-volt power system if you must remove a caliper or replace a brake hose.
