The End Of The Road For The Beetle

The End Of The Road For The Beetle

On Cruise Control this week, Ariff kicks us off with the latest headlines from the automotive world as Touch N Go share further details about their RFID system, a practice which our team has their fair share of reservations for. Next, a recent revelation proves JPJ guilty of issuing over 14,000 illegal driver’s licenses. Volkswagen's beloved model, the Beetle, has been officially retired from the market, leading to people playing guesswork over whether we’ll ever see it again, possibly as an electric car? On the topic of electric cars, Daniel breaks down ‘the race to electric’, what manufacturers need to do in order to come out on top, and possible setbacks along the way. We end the episode with a review of the Volvo XC50 T5, a car with a very tempting price tag.
