      Our RON95 is heavily subsidized by the oil producing Countries (Sabah & S’wak) of the Malaysian Federation. You think this will last for ever? You do know that Malaysia is a federation of 3 countries?

        Nope. It is a federation of 13 entities under a single country there are no 3 countries. Each might have claimed to be independent prior to the federation formation but just as Texas was an independent nation prior to joining USA, each federation entities no longer has the right to call itself a country anymore nor be treated more or less equal vis a vis with the other entities. Claiming as such is tantamount to secessionism and even USA does not take too kindly to secessionist as what happened in 1861.

    • As a Malaysian working in Indonesia. a RON 95 here cost around IDR 20K (RM 6.10) per litre. And in Jakarta, you can’t drive your car everyday.

      If its Even Date of the month only cars with even plate number can drive around the city, while on the Odd date, only Odd plate number can drive. BUT EV cars are exempted from those rules. Thus ppl willing to buy small cheap EV as their secondary cars.

      PS: RON 100 cost ard IDR42K (RM12.50)

      The battery is the costly factor. Quite complex setup. Gas (petrol) cost 4x in Australia. If the Idiot govt of Malaysia stop subsidizing Gas, and use the money to build an EV local industry & Infra, we will not suffer in future. Than again, the people will vote them out. Minister get huge pay compare to the common people.

    At that Price range ……. No Point to change to EV’s . Better to stick to ICE as they are Proven. But …. Maintenance and Fule is going to be a factor.

      ICE- gasket leak, piston kikis, oil leak, overheating, gearbox rosak, radiator leak, PCB valve problem, MAF sensor problem, oxygen sensor problem and millions more problem. EV- battery and motor. Simple

      • I have been using a junky ICE car for more than 10 years, but no such problems. Only oil leaks, but most of the oil leaks come from steering systems, brake systems etc, which EVs must have also (otherwise, how do are EVs driven?). Sometimes,I do not know how some people conclude the problems found in ICE cars…… If they trash their EVs like ICE cars (accelerate like hell, steering like maniac), can their EVs survive?

    Wahlioa..at 10 feet long only,this mini super duper EV can be easily parked anywhere.
    This might be a game changer in Bolehland if the authorities step up the charging infra.But at same time,the traffic snarls will be worst.
    The only disadvantage is only 2 doors available.

    In China they are subsidised to cost well under 10 grand but at 3x that they will never achieve mass adoption. The Wuling makes many compromises which were acceptable because of the low price but now its just another over priced novelty appliance for the few with money to burn. We need an Ev built “for the people” like the Original Beatle and Mini cooper now more than ever.
