Hey guys- good show! Also, maybe its me, but it seems like your recording volume is too low- have to turn the volume all the way up on my computer, thought I do have cheap speakers;-)
Interview with trikke.com VP of Sports and Entertainment, Cord Pereira- web site:
Very interesting piece of equipment- did a bit of research on it- I think the thing to keep in mind is that, without the battery-assisted model, this is a piece of exercise equipment, and, from reading other reviews, is best suited for a flat, hard service. I'm sure there are some ueber-fit individuals who will muscle this up hills, but for most, that would be extremely hard. And it can take up some space to 'carve' a path back and forth.
That said, it is a stable, low-impact device that works the whole body and could be a lot of fun!
Tesla stock? It's a gamble! At least by selling even just 10 cars a week it is generating $1.1 million in revenue each week- not too bad for a startup. And that does not include the ZEV credits, and work they are/were doing for Daimler. But, in the long run, it will depend on the successful mass production of the Model S.
Clever idea by Lotus, to build range-extender engines for EVs- isn't the Fisker using an engine from GM? But I wonder what it will include- seems like part of GM's development of the Volt was the software, both for battery-management and controlling the RPM levels of the gas engine- different RPMs for different conditions- and integrating it with the battery system. I think this is where the challenge is going to be, not in the engine itself- so to be successful, Lotus is going to have to supply an engine AND software to integrate it with different solutions- otherwise, why buy from Lotus?
