David Boraks

Thursday, April 4, 2018

Electric cars.  They are the future of automobiles and some would say that future is underway, though slowly.  What’s holding it back? Mike sits down with a few gear heads to get some answers this hour.

You may not believe it, but it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be driving an electric car.  That is the future of automobiles and some would say the future is now arriving.

What will it take for buyers to make the leap?  We discuss the positives and negatives of electric cars this hour.
