Alvin describes the purpose of Planet Vehicle, “The automobile provides more than just transportation. It’s an integral part of a person’s lifestyle. It’s the second largest household purchase. Our job is to make sure we present content that helps the buyer make an informed purchasing decision. We’re a reality show about automobiles.”
