Also, why do you guys keep letting Collins have cars with keyless entry? You know he’s just gonna misplace the key fob.
I really did not want to abandon a 2017 Kia Niro in the Nevada desert.
Like it or not, electric cars are the future. But to truly catch on, they have to be as good as, if not better than, the current gas-driven ones. And if somehow automakers can make the ever-elusive hydrogen fuel cells catch on, we’d be on the cusp of a permanent electric revolution. Jackie Birdsall is one of the…
