Is Malaysia Ready For Autonomous Driving?

This week on Cruise Control, the petrolheads sift through the biggest headlines in the automotive world before cruising the city in an all-electric luxury sedan.

Top news items include French car makers Renault, who have partnered up with Geely to build electric, hybrid and ICE powertrains as they both strive to reduce emissions for their respective brands. Locally, Ford announced the arrival of a base level Ranger XL with a manual transmission; while Volvo are already taking orders for their 2023 model of the XC40 Recharge.

We also discuss our readiness for autonomous driving, weighing up the pros and cons of radar-assisted driving especially in countries around South East Asia.

We round it off with Daniel's captivating impression of the uber-luxurious Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+.
