Interview: Roger McCleery on the future of motoring

Thank you for listening to the TechCentral podcast. In this episode, Duncan McLeod chats to veteran motoring journalist Roger McCleery on the future of cars.

McCleery talks about why electric cars face an uphill struggle for adoption in South Africa, but while they’re still exciting. He explains why so few electric vehicles are sold in South Africa, the barriers that need to be overcome and why they’re not nearly as “clean” as many people think they are.

Also in the podcast, McCleery, who has been writing about cars since the 1950s, chats about autonomous cars (and why he doesn’t necessarily like the idea), the sharing economy (Uber and the like) and how these concepts could come to reshape the industry.

It’s a great podcast — don’t miss it!
