This Ain't No Land Rover. It's A Range Rover.

This Ain't No Land Rover. It's A Range Rover.

In this week's show, the trio discusses Hertz's purchase of 65,000 Polestar cars, a report that ranked Malaysia as the 8th most stressful country to drive in, the government's plans to freeze toll prices in the Klang Valley, and the cases of cross-border filling. In Part 2, the trio discusses the possible return of Chinese carmaker Chery, the massive Lotus Eletre and the Toyota GR Corolla.

Finally, in Part 3, Daniel managed to get his hands on the new Land Rover Defender, finding it as luxurious as a Range Rover, which unfortunately means that it is nothing like the Defenders of old.
