BYD's Electrified Comfort

This week on Cruise Control, we look forward to the digitalization of JPJ (finally!), review yet another electric SUV, and welcome a slew of new cars to the local automotive market.

Perodua's all new Axia is now out, and the company has high hopes that the compact hatchback will do well in the markets this year. Range Rover's classic luxury SUV, the L460 is another fresh drop, as well as Audi's flagship electric supercar, the e-Tron GT Super Tourer all available for booking. Sniffing around the rumour mill, we hear that the popular Suzuki Jimny might get a Malaysian release as well. The new model for the cute and compact SUV now comes with 5 doors!

We also discuss a hot news item this week: JPJ is set to do away with road-tax stickers and go fully digital this year. Well played Anthony Loke! And we round off the programme with Daniel's impression of a Chinese EV making waves in the local market, BYD's Atto 3.
