This means that he feels quieter when riding in this car compared to a petrol vehicle," said Chang at a press conference after attending a demonstration of the mobile hydrogen refuelling unit and the hydrogen-powered car on Monday (April 1).

Chang said that Anwar did not share many things because the journey only took about five minutes, but he was visibly impressed and was indeed interested in the vehicle.
