Go for the Corolla Cross if you're sold after the test drive and the price seems fair. EVs are worth considering too if they align with your preferences, but if you're keen on the Corolla, why wait?

I went to view the Cross too but without Lane Tracing Assist, it's a big turn off for me

Actually I don't know why many people said will lining up to charger during holiday season. When we drive long distance EV is not the first option vehicle and even we have to use the EV for long distance we should plan ahead. Make sure the car is full charged and travelling distance should control under 300km during holiday season to avoid using public charger in R&R. When we reach to distination the left over balance should enough for us to travel about 50km before checking in hotel or homestay. Nowadays more and more hotels are providing EV charging facility and even in future some landed homestay will equipped with AC charger.

Some may argue that EV is not ideal for those needed to travel from JB to Penang without layover a day in the middle. I believe 99% people (except business purpose) won't drive such a long distance without a rest. EV is not that scary but one thing is seriously disadvantage is the resell value is very bad.

Too much hassle. In my case, I'd only consider owning an EV if:

1. I also have an ICE car for longer distance drives. Will use the EV for < 150km journeys.
2. I can install a personal charger in my condo parking lot and not have to depend on public charging infra.

Hola guys , I am planning to buy a new Corolla Cross , done with test drive and everything and got an offer at around 130k for V spec.

Needs your input as below :

1) Is it a good time to go in now ? Heard that Yarris Cross is coming soon and it will lower the price of Corolla Cross ....

2) Many relative and friends recommend me to buy EV car with similar price

3) Some even advise me to wait for new Perodua SUV that going to launch in April

All and all , I like the car after test drive . But I also wanna make sure to ge more opinions to avoid instant regret after purchase.

Cheers

wait for corolla cross facelift. will get EPB instead of footbrake.

yaris cross/perodua nexis is 1 segment lower, its a B segment like X50. (corolla cross comparable to X70) - i would say wait for this to launch too.

do not listen to your relative and friends to buy EV. EV is still not matured as of today. kenot use EV as main car . Its rich car toy.

Do not rush in your decision unless u really die2 need a car now. 130k not cheap leh.
