The switch to electric vehicles is speeding up.

Today, there are around 10-million battery powered vehicles on the road worldwide. By the end of the decade, there could be nearly a quarter billion.

Consider This cohost Simón Rios speaks with WBUR reporter Bruce Gellerman, who reports on a Massachusetts startup that's looking to change that.

This segment aired on February 2, 2022.
