HKG K550, K750 revealed in Shanghai

The Hybrid Kinetic Group (HKG) has revealed its K550 and K750 SUV concepts at the Shanghai motor show, following the reveal of the H600 sedan in Geneva earlier this year. In terms of design, both the K550 and K750 don't stray far from the somewhat generic styling already seen on the H600 - penned by iconic Italian design house, Pininfarina - including the slim headlights extending into the trapezoidal grille, though there are slight variations between the two when it comes to shape and size...

Mercedes-AMG: Say goodbye to atmo engines, and you can forget about diesel

At this year's New York motor show, Australian media spent time with Tobias Moers, the head of Mercedes-AMG - and chief among the topics discussed was performance, specifically how best to achieve it. In recent times, petrol engines have become so efficient, so technologically adept and so clean-running, that there is hope we may one day return to the glory days of naturally-aspirated petrol engines, even if they do run an electric motor of some sort to help things along...

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...

Volvo: diesel engines unviable post 2020

It seems clear that as far as fuels go, diesel is on the nose: and the head of Volvo Cars reckons it might not be viable beyond 2020. Volvo Cars CEO Hakan Samuelsson made the remarks at the 2017 Geneva motor show, where he said the ever-tightening emissions regulations, not to mention the cost of development when it comes to revolutionising diesel as a mainstream fuel source, could mean the company won’t offer it after 2020...

Not just any hybrid, though: the 2018 Porsche Cayenne will follow a similar path as the 2017 Porsche Panamera, with a Turbo S E-Hybrid version to sit atop the range.
