Electric cars are gaining currency and the question before the hosts of America on the Road is will cars like the ElectraMeccanica Solo, a single-person transportation device, change the way we commute? And will it change the way we deliver pizzas? Those questions and more are considered in host Jack Nerad's exclusive interview with ElectraMeccanica CEO M. Paul Rivera. The interview came after Nerad had the opportunity to test drive the diminutive vehicle. In the road test segment co-host Chris Teague got the plum assignment of squiring around in the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe. With a price tag of $106,000 and a zero-to-60 time of 5.2 seconds, this is not your grandma's crossover SUV. Meanwhile, Nerad reviews Volkswagen's "halo car," the Arteon sedan. The Arteon brings coupe-like styling and a distinct European sensibility to the market. Though you've probably never heard of the sports sedan, there's a lot to like about it. In the news, we have international intrigue and a bid to create a utopia on a Greek island. The latter is an effort by Volkswagen Group to establish an electric vehicle paradise on a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, aided and abetted by the Greek government. We also take a look at fugitive auto executive Carlos Ghosn's new book that explains why he broke out of jail and fled Japan to go into exile in Lebanon among other tales from his colorful past.
