From debating and discussing electric-vehicle infrastructure, range, range anxiety and self-driving vehicles, the shift to electrification has arguably generated more barstool and watercooler chatter in the auto industry than we have had in decades.
A lot of opinion and analysis gets shaped by automakers at events where they show off their new models to media and analysts.
WardsAuto Podcast Host and Senior Editor David Kiley, who frequently covers these events, recently connected with Mike Austin, senior analyst at Guidehouse Transportation Insights.
Both Kiley and Austin have decades of experience following the auto industry as journalists, with Austin holding editorial posts at a variety of automotive publications and websites.
These days, Austin tracks and analyzes the EV market for Guidehouse.
Take a listen while the two jawbone some of the compelling issues confronting automakers and suppliers as the industry tries to comply with government mandates – from range wars, to infrastructure to new models and more.
