We’re plugged in and ready to go for our electrified edition of Behind the Wheel.
Nearly ten years ago the very first Behind the Wheel segment aired on Australian radio - now 2500 segments later, it's time to pay tribute to our humble beginnings.
We've got a wide and varied range of cars to talk about this week, including a review of the BMW 530e - the first plug-in electric hybrid BMW 5 Series.
Of course, BMW have a couple of dedicated electric models (i3/i8), and most of their mainstream models now have electric options as well.
Lenore Fletcher from BMW Australia has some thoughts on what the government should be doing to help more of us get into emissions-free cars.
Joel Helmes adds his two cents worth on whether the taxpayer should be coughing up to encourage more folk into electric cars.
He's also been driving the top spec Volkswagen Tiguan. He’ll let us know whether he thinks it’s the new benchmark mid-size SUV.
Rachel Franco is back to look at the documentary from 2006, Who Killed the Electric Car and to pose the question "Where would we be had the car not been killed off?”.
An old mate of the show, and a face you’d regularly see on Nine News around the country, Alan Rascall pops in to tell us about his amazing cars - he's got some real exotics in the garage.
Simon Lai has been feeling manly driving the Nissan Navara - we'll find out though whether he has the rope skills to tie a load to the back of the ute.
There's plenty of news around this week, and as usual, plenty of laughs as well - Join us for another edition of the Behind the Wheel Car Podcast.
