Podcast: Interview With Wrightspeed Founder & Tesla Cofounder Ian Wright

Also published on CleanTechnica and GAS2.

Chris DeMorro, the editor of Gas2.org, and I got a great opportunity for our first Cleantech Talk interview and 8th Cleantech Talk podcast. We got to interview Ian Wright. If the name isn’t yet familiar to you, two key things to know are that 1) he is the founder and CEO of Wrightspeed (a company building extended-range electric powertrains for medium-duty trucks) and 2) he was a cofounder of Tesla Motors.

The interview was a lot of fun, and I think something that readers (er… listeners) here will really appreciate. We talked about Wrightspeed’s extended-range electric powertrains, of course, which are actually more exciting than electric sports cars in some respects. We talked about the early days of Tesla a bit. We talked about the future of electric cars. And we talked about ponies (wait… scratch that one). If you have any interest in electric vehicles, I really think you should have a listen.

As always, you can listen to the podcast via the SoundCloud player below, on SoundCloud itself, on iTunes, or by downloading it and then listening to it.

Thanks again to Ian for the wonderful interview, and a huge thanks to Chris as well.
