Cheap new Hyundai, Tesla sales crater, Ford levels up, and China doesn’t like spies

On this episode of Quick Charge, Hyundai continues to invest in new electric vehicles, this time teasing a $25,000 (ish) compact EV set to debut later this month, along with a new IONIQ model. On the domestic front, Tesla sales are cratering so hard that they’re making everyone else’s great numbers look bad, Ford is leveling up its self driving software, and China thinks the Europeans are spying on them.

We’ve got everything from controversial Masts (what do you call “tweets” on Mastodon?), wild claims from Chinese and European carmakers, and even a callback to a classic episode of John Boy and Billy radio – let us know what you think!
