Talking Cars (MP3)

Lots of electric car news to get charged up about this week, as Tesla unveiled its Model 3-based crossover Model Y, and Henrik Fisker's new automotive venture announced a $40,000 all-electric SUV. We recently bought an electric vehicle of our own for our test program, the 2019 Hyundai Kona EV, and give our first impressions on how it compares to the top rated gas version. We also answer audience questions this week about Jeep reliability vs. owner satisfaction, replacement high-performance tires for an Infiniti G37 sedan, and what to consider when your car's nearest dealership is hours away.
