Charting Malaysia's Automotive History

In this Malaysia Day special, we step back into history to rediscover Malaysia's automotive scene. From Ford's early investments into colonial Malaya in 1926, to the rise of Japanese cars in a post-Merdeka Malaysia, and the twists and turns of our national carmaker(s), we find out more about Malaysia's lengthy journey towards industrialization via the automobile.
