If electric vehicles are going become mainstream in the United States, home-charging must also move into the mainstream. Without being able to recharge their vehicles at home, consumers will find that EVs might simply offer a day-to-day experience that is too complicated and too time-consuming. In this episode of America on the Road host Jack Nerad has the chance to discuss this issue with a man who knows all about it. Brent Gruber is Senior Director of Global Automotive for J.D. Power. We talk with him about a just-released J.D. Power study on electric vehicle infrastructure and home-charging. Are carmakers and dealers doing enough to educate consumers on the ins-and-outs of owning an electric car? We’ll give you the answer.
In the road test segment of America on the Road co-host Chris Teague takes a long, hard look at the 2021 Toyota Sequoia full-size SUV. Based in Maine, Teague put the big sport-ute through a series of family-oriented tasks, and he shares how it did.
Also in the road test segment, host Jack Nerad reviews the 2021 GMC Acadia. The Acadia isn’t the best-known SUV on the market and it is certainly not the biggest, but it might be one of the best-looking. Does it act as good as it look? And what families will find the Acadia most appealing? Nerad lets us know.
What do you do if you buy a car that turns out to be a lemon? Teague and Nerad discuss your options in the listener question portion of the program.
