The Podcast, Ep 6 - MD of Ford SA Neale Hill

We were joined in-studio by the big boss of Ford SA, Mr Neale Hill, who insisted that we call him Neale, which is a testament to his character. Renowned as an accessible, relatable and as we found out, rather entertaining, Neale is a thoroughbred petrolhead and certainly has his finger on the pulse of the South African motoring industry.

In this wide-ranging interview with our video guy, Ciro De Siena, Neale discusses:

  • - Why he daily-drives a Ranger Raptor (how cool is that)
  • - The efforts Ford has made to improve customer service in South Africa
  • - the effects on price pricing when a car is made locally
  • - the problems that arise when owners customise their Ford Rangers using fake parts
  • - his first-ever car, a Mk2 Ford Escort
  • - the story of Basil Green and the legendary Capri Perana, one of which we are restoring at
  • - the future of the South African motor industry and Ford's place in it
  • - the future of EVs in South Africa

We hope you enjoy this special podcast and we'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments
