A Seven-Seater Gone Electric

Cruise Control returns this week buzzing with a slew of electric car news!

The big headline all week is the official arrival of Tesla in our local market, the American giants launched their best selling Model Y, consequently plummeting prices for grey-imported Tesla's in the used car market down by 50%. Also in the mix is the arrival of Smart #1 and Hyundai's stylish Ioniq 6, steadily growing the electric line up in Malaysia. We also discuss which of the three new models that makes the most financial sense if you're mulling on taking the plunge into electric mobility.

We round off this episode with Daniel's impression of the electric seven-seater, as he got behind the wheels of the Mercedes Benz EQB.
