Tesla Gigafactory Quebec?, Toyota changes its tune, Aptera reopens investments, and more

This week on the Electrek Podcast, we discuss the most popular news in the world of sustainable transport and energy. This week, we discussed a potential Tesla Gigafactory in Quebec?, Toyota changing its tune on EVs (meaning they seem to actually want to build them instead of disparage them), Aptera the hyper aerodynamic solar car reopening investments, and more. The show is live every Friday at 4 p.m. ET on Electrek’s YouTube channel. As a reminder, we’ll have an accompanying post, like this one, on the site with an embedded link to the live stream.
