Electrified Vehicles Are Paid For with Pickup Trucks and SUVs – EV Podcast #2 (MEDIA)

Join us for lively discussions on electric vehicles! Our second podcast in our EV-centered series talks about the dark side of electric vehicles. Few will admit it, but the electrified vehicle industry is largely fueled (no pun intended) by profits from the not-so-eco-friendly automotive markets of trucks and sport utility vehicles. 

The reality is that electric vehicles are paid for through profits made from pickup trucks and SUVs. Aaron and Nicolas examine this and ask the burning question: when will EVs become sustainable?
