This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-8-12-22: Crashes, Taxes, & Chargers (Oh My!)

Written by

Electric vehicles are poised to replace gas guzzling fossil fuel powered cars and trucks in the not too distant future, but there are a lot of bugs still to be worked out between now and then.

For example, there is a new report out that highlights safety issues with three popular midsize cars.

 In addition, Congress has been debating how best to use tax policy to encourage consumers to buy electric vehicles, while also encouraging automakers to move more of their operations out of China, and back to the US.

 A third concern we're tackling this week, is the lack of sufficient charging stations for EV drivers who are out on the road, and far from home.

 Our special guest is WWJ Radio Detroit Automotive Correspondent, and frequent CBS News Radio contributor, Jeff Gilbert.

 We asked him why the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently gave the Toyota Camry, Chevy Malibu, and Nissan Altima, poor marks for protecting drivers and passengers from injury in side crashes.
