Here is the first Fully Charged news episode of 2021 and we’ve tried hard to focus on the positive stories to help balance the abundance of negative news in the wider world.

As a starter for 10, Fully Charged OUTSIDE will (we very much hope) be returning this year to Farnborough (UK) in June and Fully Charged LIVE will be launching in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in October. More information on these shows can be found here - https://fullycharged.show/events/

In other news, while technology giant Apple looks to be on the cusp of starting to make electric cars, the sales of Volkswagen’s EVs look like they are being limited by the car dealerships. We could also be reaching the tipping point for electric car pricing with news that battery cell prices have finally fallen below $100 per kWh and America is trialing a (small) number of fully electric school buses.

There’s also a sneaky Bobby’s Book Review thrown in, signs that Toyota are making their first steps in the EV market and news that Airbus have designed pods that could be the blueprint for future hydrogen aircraft.
