Styling face-off: 2020 Land Rover Defender 90 v 2011 DC100 concept

Back in 2011, literally a century ago (okay, that's not how 'literally' works), well before I joined CarAdvice, I wrote about and drooled over the Land Rover DC100 concept. CarAdvice wrote about it too, of course. Modeled as a potential preview of the new off-roading SUV that would replace the legendary Defender, the DC100 introduced a look that brought some modernity to the concept.

Automotive News reports the electric crossover, which appears to be based on the ID Crozz concept, will wear the ID.4 name when it enters production next year.

Honda E: Type R version ruled out

Yet-to-be-released top-end versions of the Honda E electric hatchback will likely have more high-tech features instead of extravagant power figures, a wild bodykit and Nurburgring-tuned handling. Kohei Hitomi, project leader for the E, told Autocar a Type R variant "is not the way to go with the E".
