Jill and Tom open the show by talking about Jill’s strange hotel room. Jill is on the road driving a new Hyundai Ioniq 6. The conversation turns to the issue of monthly new car supplies and reviews of some of the vehicles that can be easily found at dealerships at the moment. The hosts also discussed the all-new Genesis G70 Electrified, an all-electric version of the Korean luxury manufacturer’s compact crossover. A full review of the car will be shared in an upcoming episode.
Jill and Tom were joined in the second segment by industry analyst Sam Fiorani of AutoForecast Solutions. Sam shared some insight into the operations of major auto dealership chains—including Auto Nation and CarMax—and what retail consolidation means for consumers. Sam also shares insight into the slow rollout of several electric vehicles, including the Toyota bZ4X and the Nissan Ariya.
Sam joins Jill for this week’s test. Puzzle theme: Subaru, with a bonus question about the radish variety. Tom ended the program sharing his impressions of the large SUV BMW X7 M60i.
