Welcome to the Electric Virgins podcast
The Electric Virgins podcast series puts stars into electric cars for the first time to let them make the mistakes, so you don’t have to!
Putting our celebrities in the driving seat enables them to tackle the challenges that we know all drivers face when they first make the switch; in a recent Electrifying.com survey over half of drivers admitted that they feel less confident driving an electric car than they do a petrol or diesel motor.
Our humorous, no holds barred conversation covers the trials, tribulations and triumphs of making the switch and is packed with useful information to help all the other ‘electric virgins’ out there.
From electric cars being surprisingly quiet, to the strange sounds they do make, with public charging, range anxiety and the latest tech thrown in along the way; each Electric Virgin has a fascinating tale to tell with some embracing switch better than others.
