Silverado EV, UAW Strike, Electric Vehicle Demand
Jill returns to the studio for a topic-packed episode. In the first segment, Jill recounts for Tom the highpoints of her recent participation in the Rebelle Rally. Tom is impressed that Jill sustained no serious injuries. Jill also gave an update on the North American Car of the Year (NACTOY) voting process. NACTOY finalists should be announced during the Los Angeles Auto Show. Jill also spent some time with the all-new Chevrolet Silverado EV. Jill came away generally impressed, and noted that the truck's key selling point is battery range. Tom discussed briefly the Mazda Iconic SP concept car, seen at the Toyota Motor Show, which may be a harbinger of the next generation of the MX-5 Miata. In the second segment Jill and Tom welcome Sam Fiorani of AutoForecast Solutions to the show. Sam shared his thoughts on a number of topics including the UAW Strike, the UAW's inability to unionize transplant automakers, the state of the EV market, and why Tesla is cutting prices so dramatically. Sam also talked about his new webcast--found on YouTube--called "Afternoons! with Kendra and Sam." In the last segment Jill is subjected to Tom's "Honda or Hallmark" quiz, and Tom talked about another Tokyo Motor Show reveal, the Honda Prelude Concept. The McDonald's Canadian menu also came up.
