The Year in EVs, Road Trip Rides

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell open the show with a chat about their test vehicles for their respective holiday road trips: the Audi Q5 Sportback, Subaru Outback Wilderness, and the new-for-2022 Lexus NX 450h+ plug-in hybrid. John Voelcker, former Editor-in-Chief of and current contributing editor to Car and Driver, joins the show to give us his take on the electric-vehicle news of 2021, and the state of the EV market moving forward. Tom has a true-or-false quiz on the Dodge Challenger and the state of Wisconsin for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a look back at the 1992-96 Buick Regal GS Sport Coupe.
