Straight Torque, Episode 2

You already know that we have a new 10-minute motoring talk show on this website called Straight Torque (an audio-only version of which, by the way, is also broadcast on Podcast.ph).

A week ago, we released the very first episode, which tackled app-based transport services.

For Episode 2, we're discussing new-car sales in the Philippines and the role it plays in the worsening traffic conditions especially in Metro Manila. For one, do you know just how many new cars roll out of the showroom and onto our roads every day? You'd be amazed, we tell you. We actually did the math during our discussion.

For this topic, we have for our guest the first vice president for marketing of Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, Froilan Dytianquin. Mitsubishi is the second-best-selling automotive brand in our market, next only to Toyota.

As a bonus, our guest executive gives us an idea as to when his company is finally launching the all-new Montero Sport. Watch the show.
