The Holiday Is Ending. EV Road Tax Starts In 2026

Kicking things off on Cruise Control with our biggest news this week, Ali, Richard, and Daniel get into the newly announced road tax structure for zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) coming into effect in 2026. Next, with the possibility of a lemon law finally being introduced next year, we find out what it means to the country's car landscape and why we need it pronto. Then, some car launches already making waves fresh off the production lines: the Ford Ranger Stormtrak 2024 and the Peugeot 408 Hybrid.

In part two, Daniel unpacks the Chinese auto invasion in ASEAN that began in 2022 and its impact on the region, the first effects of which we're possibly seeing with the Subaru Corporation as they phase out the assembly of all Subaru vehicles in South East Asia - a move that might be the first casualty of this wave and possibly the first of many.

And to round things up, we've got a used car review! This time, it's all about the BMW 118i 2014 - the 10-year-old BMW filling up the classifieds that might surprise you.
