Podcast: HR-V e:HEV and Escape PHEV driven

The CarExpert team is back for another week of podcasting, looking at the topics that made car news over the past week.


In this episode, Mandy is joined by Mike Costello and William Stopford, with James Wong chiming in to run through the latest in automotive news and what’s happening at CarExpert’s offices around Australia.

In car news, there’s high demand for the new Volkswagen ID. Buzz and ID. Cargo in Australia but they mightn’t arrive until 2024, you can no longer put down a deposit on a Tesla Cybertruck locally, Walkinshaw and Volkswagen are in talks for a next-generation Amarok flagship, and the venerable Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series is receiving some safety and payload updates.

Mike Costello discusses his Ford Escape PHEV review, while James Wong dials in to chat about the new Honda HR-V e:HEV hybrid.
