Tesla Roll Out The Cybertruck

The Cruise Control trio are back this week with some very good news from the recently concluded Thai Motor Expo in Bangkok. We focus on seven vehicles with a high likelihood of arriving in Malaysian markets soon.

Great Wall Motors are keen to add another EV in Malaysia, following the encouraging response to the ORA Good Cat, and the Chinese manufacturers unveiled a sleek electric sedan dubbed as the ORA Lightning Cat, their smartest electric car to date. Volvo also gave a taste of what's to come in their electric fleet, showcasing yet another compact crossover, the EX30. Another brand that's set to return to our local market is MG, and they are keen to bring over a high performance electric hatchback, parading their MG4 XPower, with a century sprint time of just 3.8 seconds!

In the global markets, Tesla rocked the world yet again launching its steely Cybertruck, an electric pickup truck with boxy design cues not unlike Dr. Emmett Brown's Delorean, straight out of Back To The Future! You just have to see it to believe it. We round off the show lamenting on new battery technologies currently being rolled out, promising greater range of up to a thousand kilometres, subsequently begging the question: what will happen to shorter range EVs in the next few years? Only time will tell.
