Check out this two-part Husband and wife duo on the latest episodes of The Power Connect from this week as we welcome Don Wright from Unico and his wife, Dr. Veronika Wright, aka Electrified Veronika. 

The two share a love for all things batteries, electrification and batteries, which, let's face it, what couple doesn't? 

Don, a 30-year automotive veteran, discusses how battery voltage systems have evolved and why he's tired of one-sided arguments bashing EVs.  He also tells us what Unico's role is in the EV testing ecosystem. Meanwhile Dr. Wright explains how her love for 'Gilmore Girls' inspired the '99 Jeep Wrangler EV conversion she and Don are working on together - from scratch. The Austrian immigrant also dishes on how another famous Austrian immigrant inspired her.

There's probably more to it than we think about how couples view EVs. If one person is all in but the other has range anxiety, are they really going to invest in an EV?

A JEEP is a very inefficient vehicle. If it gets bad gas mileage like 15 mpg it will never be a good Electric. It will be a watt hog instead of a gas hog. 

  A nive light weight efficient car is the best. Aero dynamic is also a good idea. JEEP is just not a good or safe vehicle.
