Here are highlights from the latest episodes of 'Daily Drive', Automotive News' weekday podcast, Sept. 19-22, hosted by Jamie Butters with Kellen Walker.
“If you didn’t think that the era of electrification was already on the way, if you showed up there, you’d be completely convinced at that point, I think.” -- John Irwin, Automotive News reporter covering suppliers and electric vehicles, on The Battery Show in suburban Detroit
“Home charging, ideally, will be done overnight. That is where the grid has the most capacity. And so that’s where, as a utility, we’re saying, ‘Do that! Do more of that, please!’” -- Sarah Nielsen, executive director of electric vehicle programs at Consumers Energy in Michigan, about the ways utilities are preparing for higher demand from electric vehicles
“Our automotive customers, they’re managing thousands of different pieces from hundreds of different Tier 1s and thousands of different Tier 2s. So, on any given day, it’s not just Yazaki that’s impacted by our own supply chains, but it’s Yazaki that’s impacted by other people’s supply chains.” -- Eric Varton, Yazaki North America vice president of engineering, on the climate that suppliers face in 2022
