Are car sales staff fit for purpose?

A recent survey found that staff at car dealerships do not make customers aware of Electric Vehicles as a purchase option.

A lack of sales staff knowledge about the changing face of vehicle technology is one factor. The survey showed that customers wanting to buy a car would remain ignorant of the EV option after speaking to car sales staff.

Myths perpetuated by car sales staff included:

  1. Their brands EV had a range of only 80km (ranges currently vary between 180 to 540km).
  2. They claimed that EVs were expensive to run (the opposite is in fact true).
  3. A model was only available for petrol or diesel.
  4. Told lies about EVs economy.

SyFy cancels The Expanse

What a bunch of dicks.

The best Science Fiction on the small screen and has gotten better every season. Then they go and cancel it after this years Season 3!

Yeah I pointed out previously that this was a cool show, with real physics and a great story. Something for everyone.

The streaming series is based on the books by James S.A. Corey, the last of which is due to be published next year.

If you haven't seen it yet on Netflix, then you should (along with the new series of Star Trek and Lost in Space!). Season 3 should be on Netflix this October.
