Main theme: We debate Ford's announcement about its electric vehicle plans for the near future. First up would be a "Mustang inspired" crossover. In 2021, the automaker may release a fully electric F-150 pickup truck, followed by two EV crossovers in 2022.
In addition, we go over the National Transportation Safety Board's release of documents related to a crash involving a Tesla Model S and a parked fire truck in January 2018.
