Munro Gets a New Tesla Model 3 to Analyze!

Surprise!  We listened to what you wanted to see next and the vote’s in… so you get another look into the new and improved Tesla Model 3.

While we haven’t started tearing it apart just yet, in this video Sandy gives his first impressions on the vehicle.  Unfortunately, Sandy’s first finding regarding the fit and finish is still, well… unfavorable.  Uneven gaps still abound on the outside, but Sandy is impressed with the paint job and the interiors.

Sandy goes on to talk about where we will go with the car from here.  But spoiler alert, Sandy is planning to take it on a road trip first before the teardown, so stay tuned to watch how this all progresses.

The Bricklin 3EV – Malcolm Bricklin Interview Part 1

Sandy Munro and Malcolm Bricklin go head to head and talk about the upcoming Visionary Vehicles product the Bricklin 3EV.

Malcolm talks about how he went from a car design, distilled it down to a bicycle, and then came back up to a three-wheeler.  This includes getting Dan Panoz to design a car that is esthetically beautiful like a Lamborghini yet safe and affordable.

From Visionary Vehicles business model, to safety, and production information – including that the car will be assembled by veterans, this is an episode that you do not want to miss.  Click here to watch the full video:

 

 

Sandy Goes On E For Electric to Talk About Hummer EV in Depth

E For Electric E-Hummer with Sandy Munro

Sandy Goes On E For Electric to Talk About Hummer EV in Depth

Once again, Sandy goes on E for Electric with Alex Guberman to talk in-depth about the upcoming Hummer EV which had a prototype revealed recently in the news.  Judging from the response that we got from our viewers on Munro Live and our social media, this is a sort of controversial automobile.

Enthusiasts of I.C.E. cars think this is a great way to transition an iconic brand into the EV realm, breathing new life into it.  Some were even arguing earlier that this vehicle is going to be vaporware and never materialize, but GM has recently announced that it is definitely going into production starting in the fall of 2021 and moreover they have completely sold out all of their reservations!

In this interview, Sandy will explain what GM will have to go through to get this vehicle production ready so quickly and some of the struggles that await them, but mark Sandy’s word, he thinks that the timeline is more manageable than some think because at the end of the day, many aspects of this vehicle, GM knows how to manufacture and that the main hurdles will just be battery and electric motor related.

What’s In The Box? Munro Reveals

So… are you ready to find out what is in the mystery box from 3 Munro live episodes ago?  If you watched Sandy’s Tesla Battery Day Follow-up video, you know that there is a cryptic package produced by Sandy at the end of the video and all are left wondering… what is in the darn box?!  Well wait no more, the day has come, the box and it’s content are the subject of this next Munro Live video.

In this episode, Sandy talks with Tracy McSheery from Sapphire Motors about literally re-inventing the wheel, or should I say the motor… Or should I say a wheel motor.  This episode covers heavily the Halbach array effect and how this can be used in the next generation of EVs.

This is a long-format interview that covers lots of ground, but if you call yourself an EV enthusiast, you won’t want to miss this episode.  No spoilers here, just watch the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eNMYHLmUlA&ab_channel=MunroLive

Sandy Munro On The The Past, Present, and Future of EVs

The Past Present and Future of EVs

Sandy Munro On The The Past, Present, and Future of EVs

In the latest installment of Munro Live, Sandy shares excerpts from a video that was made for investors in the EV world teaching them how to perceive the new course of this market by examining the past, present, and future.

There is a lot of great moments in this 22+ minute video, but definitely a quotable takeaway, as Sandy puts it, “It is not the big that eat the small, but rather the fast that eat the slow.”  This of course in response to the established car companies that are moving very slow to bring innovation to market in their new EVs.

If you are an investor and want to get an insight into how Munro views various car companies with some real-world examples, this is a must-watch for you!

Then Sandy moves on to explaining the newly proposed body structure that will incorporate 2 Mega-castings (front and rear) with the battery packs creating the new center body and why this move is such a big deal in the automotive design realm.

Lastly, Sandy makes an impassioned plea to Tesla for… well you will just have to watch:
