CarNewsCafe Podcast 12 – Elio update, Honda Fit EV, hybrid supercars, Weebles

This week we talk about a lot of great stuff, some of it even relevant. We find out that Adam is going to a wedding that’s not his, meaning he’s still available (ladies, contact him here); Nicolas likes Mitsubishi because they bring him cars to drive; Aaron knows a lot of children’s songs and Monty Python quotes; and stuff that’s actually relevant to automotive like:

  • Elio Motors seems less and less likely that they will actually build a car
  • Nissan is building driverless cars thanks in part to their Silicon Valley Research Center.
  • Kia’s hamster mascots
  • The CarNewsCafe Ford Transit Connect Van of Awesomeness
  • Hybrid supercars and the phenomenon of electrification as gasoline engines downsize
  • Adam rides the train and the guys ask.. Who Is John Galt?
  • Nicolas, since he lives in LA, can’t miss a chance to get himself on TV
  • He is also getting a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

A fun week with lots of great stuff!
