Mercedes EQE 500 4Matic SUV: Large, Luxury, Electric

This week on Cruise Control, Ali and Daniel take us through the latest in the automotive world.

First up, we get the gears going with news of the latest car launches in Malaysia: from the surprising Chery Tiggo 7 Pro and Isuzu Motors' recently revealed electric 1-ton D-Max pickup truck, to the brand new Audi Q6 e-tron and a first look at BMW's all-electric offering, the Neue Klasse X concept SUV. We also find out when we can expect to see them in our showrooms so we can test drive them for ourselves.

Next, we shift gears as we discuss the recently announced Online Motor Vehicles De-Registration System (e-Dereg), which JPJ hopes will tackle the age-old issue of abandoned cars that populate housing areas. For anyone guilty of leaving a car idle for years, Daniel has one piece of advice: Sell the car.

Finally, we get a peek at the Mercedes-Benz EQE 500 4Matic SUV. What does the latest addition to the Mercedes EQ family bring to the table as it joins the growing lineup of SUVs on the market? Tune in to hear Daniel's thoughts on the car!
