Episode #102: Josh Edson, The Electric Vehicle Revolution

Josh Edson, from Tim Dahle Nissan, sits down with Matt to chat about the electric vehicle revolution we’re experiencing. As the local car dealership’s “electric vehicle ambassador,” they talk about trends in electric vehicle sales and how the new EVs are different than the early models (they go further!) They talk about the state legislature’s unfortunate decision to eliminate Utah’s EV tax credit last session and the current status of the federal tax credit. Josh describes how efforts to expand an EV charging infrastructure are going and the pitch he uses to encourage Nissan customers to consider purchasing or leasing a Nissan Leaf. Lastly, they discuss the future of autonomous or “self-driving” cars. For more information, check out Josh on the dealership’s Web site and on Facebook.
