Electrify America, Our Favorite New Vehicles

With co-host Jill Ciminillo out on assignment this week, host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell start the show by discussing the vehicles they drove at the 2022 Midwest Automotive Media Association Spring Rally, a journalist-only press event held annually at the Road America race course facility in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Michael Buff, Senior Manager, Product and Programs at Electrify America, joins us to talk about Electrify America’s EV charging systems. Tom has a quiz on auto-factory locations for Damon, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a First Look preview of the redesigned 2023 Lexus RX midsize SUV.
