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!

In the second installment of the “In Depth” episode of the YouTube Channel “Now You Know”, Zac and Jesse ask Sandy Munro all sort of questions probing into the even incredulous, such as, “Can the Cyber Truck be made aquatic?”  Want to know Sandy’s answers? Well you will have to watch that show.  Click here now to watch:

Sandy also talks about what makes people who will buy a Cybertruck over a conventional truck different and the specific features that make it more appealing to different people’s needs.  There is also talk about Arcimoto and other Munro projects that are going on right now.  Plus… a flying car? What?

Also, just to throw it out there, our Model Y report which showcases all the leading EV technology and those suggestions Munro gave to Tesla can now be purchased. No other car we have analyzed has this many technology leaps.  One of those leaps is the Octovalve and Thermal System which is such a unique technology that we created a separate report just on it.  Also, Munro has reports on 3 EV Inverters and a comparison of 10 of the leading EV motors and the Model 3.

If you are serious about competing in the new EV world, these reports are a must-have.  Don’t be left in the dust while your competitors reap the knowledge contained in these tomes.  Reports of this type don’t exist anywhere else in the market.  Contact for more information.

Sandy Munro’s July 8th 2020 Patreon Q & A Session

In this newly released Q&A session, Sandy Munro answers various pressing questions of our Patrons.  First up on the docket was the pressing question of whether Munro why did Munro choose to start a YouTube Channel and Patreon page during the COVID Pandemic (marketing, PR stunt, add revenue, brand status, etc.) and whether it made a dent in our earnings or helped to keep Munro solvent during this time.  Sandy simply answers that this is simply a way of documented our process and a way to show our customers what we do (or did), but we didn’t think we would have that many viewers.  “Did we make any money at this? Actually no, not really.” Sandy explains, “We made some money when we were selling componentry and whatnot, but that has fallen away.  The objective here is to get the word out on objectives that people want to buy.”

Sandy then goes on completely bash the Reliant Robin (with Mr. Bean references) while exonerating the Arcimoto 3 wheel vehicle, when they are getting compared by a viewer.  He then tells about how the Morgan, another English vehicle, also had similar beginnings but then went on to become an excellent vehicle and, “a hill-climbing champion.”

From there, you have questions regarding the crashworthiness of the mega casting in relation to safety, how the Tesla Y report is selling and who is buying, how does Tesla view consultants vs the Detroit 3 or Asian automakers, and much, much, more.
