Is It Time To Consider A Used EV?

Is It Time To Consider A Used EV?

Cruise Control returns this week with exciting news on a brand new Maserati, and possibly Malaysia's first EV!

Naza Italia announced the Maserati Gran Turismo, a high performance sports car that is also great for long distance travels. On a sombre note, we got word that iconic tire company Goodyear will be closing down their factory in Shah Alam, which had been in operation since 1972.

The big news this week is Daniel's commentary on the prospects of a Perodua EV, based on Sime Darby's recent acquisition of the company's shares. Our conversation also veered into the EV price wars that have been brewing in our local markets, noting how price-sensitive this segment can be. With more Chinese EV cars entering our markets, perhaps an electric Myvi can soothe the desires of working class Malaysians? Only time will tell.
