2017 Mini Clubman John Cooper Works - 2016 Paris Motor Show

With 170kW and 350Nm available from a 2-litre turbo, the AWD JCW Clubman has plenty going for it... until you see the price. This car is shown at €49,000 which is about $72k in Australia, plus on-road costs. That is one cool but pricey Mini!

2017 Opel Ampera - 2016 Paris Motor Show

Finally an affordable, EV city car with a decent 500km range. The Opel Ampera (Chevrolet Bolt) was designed in Australia but sadly is at this stage a left-hand drive only proposition. It shows what can be done however, and we look forward to seeing what GM can produce down the line.
