EV-Startup Reality Check, Underrated Cars
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell kick off the show by talking about the current and recently discontinued vehicles they think are underrated. Sam Fiorani, Vice President of Global Vehicle Forecasting for AutoForecast Solutions, joins us to discuss the current crop of electric-vehicle startup companies and their prospects for success, as well as the ongoing microchip shortage and other auto-industry current events. Sam also sticks around for the third segment to serve as our guest quizmaster–he has a quiz for Tom, Damon, and Jill on which Hollywood celebrities serve as spokespeople for various automakers. Damon then runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a handy overview on buying a car from home via CarMax, Carvana, or Vroom.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast every Sunday on Chicago’s WCPT AM 820 at 1:00 PM CST.
