A Used Mercedes B-Class Is A Bargain For What It Is

A Used Mercedes B-Class Is A Bargain For What It Is

In this week's show, Ariff and Daniel discusses Sony Mobility (Sony's new car program), and rising prices of Lithium and how it may effect electric cars in 2022.

In Part 2, they briefly touch on Melaka's brand new EV assembly plant, and mull over rumours of an Audi CKD program. They also discuss another record breaking year for Volvo, and their launch of the V60 station wagon.

Finally, in Part 3, Daniel talks us through a largely forgotten Mercedes-Benz: the first-generation B-Class. At the time, it didn't quite become the volume seller for Mercedes-Benz, but today, more than a handful are now up for sale in the Used Car Market, for roughly 10% of its original selling price. Is this surprising price tag worth it for a 2006 Mercedes-Benz?
