For users of the newest and greatest modern devices, the phrase "bricked" 

automatically conjures up the worst-case scenario. It may come as no surprise

that this term has now entered the lexicon used to describe electric vehicles

given the sinking feeling that a software update, power surge, or mysterious

internal failure has reduced a once-useful mobile device into a rectangular hunk

of useless plastic.A bricked EV is a horrifying thought. The stakes are much higher

On a sunny airfield, with perhaps one of the best soundtracks ever, this is how it all plays out.
