The Volvo V60 Is Sublime, But Nobody's Buying One

The Volvo V60 Is Sublime, But Nobody's Buying One

In this week's show, we start with a discussion on whether Malaysia should continue to subsidize fuel, before discussing two (wildly different) PHEVs - the first, a Haval H6 plug-in hybrid with a 200km electric range, and the second, the stunning Ferrari 296 GTB. In Part 2, Ariff reports back on his two factory visits: Carsome's brand new automotive refurbishment facility and Porsche's first assembly plant outside of Europe, in Kulim, Kedah.

Finally, Daniel discusses the enjoyment he had behind the wheel of the Volvo V60 T8 Inscription, and explains why he's decided to stop calling it a wagon. It's a 'long hatch', apparently.
