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
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.

“All right ramblers, let’s get ramblin!” In this episode of Munro Live, Sandy starts things off with a crash and a bang by throwing things off the roof… “What did you say?”, yes that’s right – in this fun take off of Reservoir Dogs put together by Munro’s own Tylor Schlink, Sandy is throwing a customer’s products off the 30 foot roof of Munro & Associates.
Is Sandy “Mr. Green”, a heretofore unmentioned character in Quintin Tarantino’s classic? Chicken Little is the sky falling? No. But there is an interesting reason for this… you will have to watch the video to find out!

Hello again boys and girls, and welcome to another episode of Munro Live. In today’s episode we discuss the somewhat controversial move Apple is making where all new iPhone 12 phones will ship without wall chargers or Lightning EarPods in the box to reduce the phone’s environmental impact over time.
In general though, Sandy thinks this is both a good move for the environment as well as returning profit to the shareholders by reducing an unnecessary cost. Beyond saving money by not providing the charger and the earbuds, Apple can reduce box size and internal packaging which, unless you are a hoarder like Cory, will just end up in the landfill anyway. Moreover, Apple packaging their phone in a smaller box will decrease shipping costs and allow them to ship more due to the reduced volume of the boxes.
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.
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!
Jalopnik Drops Off The Cheapest EV in the World at Munro
Well, they warned us… Jalopnik’s own Jason Torchinsky threatened that he was going to come visit Munro after competing in the race “Motorsport 4 the Masses” event in Franklin, North Carolina, and by golly, here they are!
As the Changli, in all it’s 1.1 Horsepower glory, can’t handle a trip of more than 28 miles on a single charge, the car is getting transported around using an F 250 Tremor. Jason promised to come visit Munro with this oddity of a vehicle after the race so that Sandy could tool-around a bit with it, give some analysis, and lament over the engineering he finds, exclaiming, “everything here tells me I don’t know anything about cars” lol.
