What’s the true cost of that Nissan LEAF your neighbor is driving? How about that Chevrolet Volt? We’re not talking about the cost to own; we’re talking about the cost to manufacture. Sandy Munro is a manufacturing expert, and as the president of Munro & Associates, he makes it his business to figure out the smartest way to assemble cars. He recently reverse engineered the Chevrolet Volt, and as our guest this week he’ll be able to tell us what it really costs to build an EV and where that expense originates. Of course, we’ll also be getting into the hottest topics in the news including a discussion about what impact the 2012 election results will have on the auto industry. Joining John McElroy to talk about this and a whole lot more is the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo, and Joe White from The Wall Street Journal.
