    Mitsubishi, where are your EVs?

    Mitsubishi, where are your EVs?
    Every couple of years over the last decade Mitsubishi has pulled the wraps off an EV concept but we’ve seen donut in terms of production models since the tiny, short-lived i-MiEV in 2011. What’s up with that?

    This week the CarsGuide Podcarst panel (Editor Mal Flynn, Senior Journalist Richard Berry, and Deputy Editor James Cleary) looks at what, on the face of it, appears to be Mitsubishi EV Fake News! Has the Japanese brand fallen off the back of the electric vehicle wave?

    We’ll also cover ‘This Week in News’ - the breaking news stories you need to know about (Ampol goes Electric, new-gen Mustang, and a ghostly little SUV from Hyundai), and give you a rundown on the fresh metal we’ve been driving this week, in ‘Cars in the Garage.’

    Ford’s Ranger and Everest sales problem! #242

    Ford’s Ranger and Everest sales problem! #242

    Is Ford failing in Australia? The brand easily and successfully sells the Ranger pickup and Everest 4x4 SUV, but its other models are being overlooked.

    The Ranger ute is by far Ford’s top-selling model and it is Australia’s second favourite model behind HiLux, for sales. The Everest SUV is also a sales winner. So why can’t Ford seem to sell any other models, and what is the company doing about it?

    In this episode of the CarsGuide podcast, Tim Nicholson, Byron Mathioudakis and Stephen Ottley investigate whether Ford can broaden its appeal beyond its two hero cars.

    LandCruiser Chaos! #238

    LandCruiser Chaos! #238

    It’s an Aussie family and off-road favourite, but getting your hands on a new Toyota LandCruiser 70 or 300 Series has never been harder, with wait times blowing out to years not months. Toyota’s stopped taking orders in Japan, so should you wait or buy a Patrol instead?

    In this episode of the CarsGuide podcast, James Cleary, Matt Campbell, and Andrew Chesterton discuss the supply and demand nightmare currently facing Toyota in Japan and Australia when it comes to putting a new LandCruiser in your driveway.

Unrivalled Experts

Always top notch stuff from James and the crew. Great topics and automotive chat, as well as insightful reviews and good old Aussie banter. They still don’t seem to understand a thing about dual cab utes 😂 (James - I’m looking at you), but then we wouldn’t have it any other way. After all, a good car enthusiast shouldn’t really like dual cab utes anyway.
Keep it up lads.
