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

In car news, Genesis Motors has announced it’ll be going EV and hydrogen-only by 2030, Hyundai has revealed its cute little Casper crossover, the plug-in hybrid Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance is confirmed for Australia, and the Isuzu D-Max is getting a new 1.9-litre turbo-diesel option for 2022.

Mike Costello also speaks with Honda Australia’s CEO, Stephen Collins, about the company’s future Down Under.
