Does Going Electric Fight Fascists?, 2023 Toyota Sequoia

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Toyota’s redesigned-for-2023 Sequoia full-size SUV. Max Baumhefner, Senior Attorney with the National Resources Defense Council, joins us to talk about the NRDC’s efforts to improve America’s electric-vehicle infrastructure and get the country off foreign oil. Tom has a “fake trim levels” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Limited.
