Tesla CTs get totaled, EV sales going great, and a call for better charging signs

On today’s electrifying episode of Quick Charge, we check out a number of totaled Teslas, question the legitimacy of “boat mode,” and chart the company’s declining sales. Meanwhile, NIO is hitting its sales targets, VW is doubling production of its electric van, and I want 60′ tall illuminated EV charging signs on highways.

Apps like Chargeway and Tesla’s mapping function do a phenomenal job of showing EV infrastructure to the people who need it, but that’s not how you build trust among people who aren’t yet EV drivers. Check out my rant in the Wrigley Field article, below, then let us know how you think better signage might alter the EV conversation in the comments.
