Mazda electric vehicle to have a rotary range extender

The rotary looks likely to return… as a range-extender. A report from Holland says the first electric Mazda will debut during 2019, and will be a similar size to the Mazda 3.

Although the report acknowledges the fact most drivers only cover 60km a day, it says a Wankel range-extender will be optional to cure range anxiety.

Ford Mustang Bullitt confirmed for Australia

Sydney or San Francisco? In the Ford Mustang Bullitt, every drive is like being in car chase. Alright, not really.

The car gets a 5.0-litre V8, naturally, along with a host of stylish upgrades like unique 19-inch wheels, special green paint and a classic eight-ball gear knob.

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio pricing and specs

Alfa Romeo has announced full pricing and spec details for the upcoming, high-riding Stelvio. We’ll be getting a petrol and a diesel, with pricing to start from $65,900 before on-roads. There aren’t many options, either – base specification is fairly generous.

It’s actually happening! The Honda Urban EV will be available to order from early 2019 in Europe, with production set to start later next year. As for Australia? Things aren’t quite as clear.

2018 Toyota Corolla unveiled

Get ready to see a LOT of these on the road. The new Corolla has been revealed in Geneva, complete with some seriously sharp styling. It’ll be built on the (rather excellent) Toyota New Global Architecture, with a likely August arrival date.

2019 Toyota Supra confirmed with Gazoo concept

2019 Lexus UX revealed

The Lexus UX has officially been unveiled in Geneva and… it looks just like you’d expect it to. There are plenty of sharp edges, and the nose is home to a huge Spindle Grille. Business as usual, then.

Under the skin, it will be offered with a 2.0-litre petrol and petrol-electric hybrid, both of which are new to Toyota and Lexus. Combined with a new-generation CVT transmission, it’s got all the makings of a handy compact crossover. Are you a fan of the looks?

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo revealed

Porsche used Geneva to further its electric agenda, revealing the jacked-up semi-crossover Cross Turismo. With more than 440kW from its two electric motors, it’ll hit 100km/h in 3.5 seconds – and you’ve got a 480km range to play with, along with a 0-to-80 per cent charge time of just 15 minutes with an 800V fast charger.

Three trim levels will be offered, although the entire range shares a powertrain. Get the full breakdown here.
