BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen fined for steel cartel

Germany's three major automakers, the BMW Group, Daimler (parent of Mercedes-Benz) and the Volkswagen Group, have been fined a total of €100 million ($163 million) for forming a cartel to buy certain steel products. The Bundeskartellamt, Germany's competition commission, says the three car companies met twice a year with steel makers between 2004 and 2013 to set uniform surcharges for the long steel they purchased. Illegally set prices were in use until 2016.

Tesla Cybertruck: Yes, this is it! On sale in US now from $39,900, Australian plans uncertain

Do not adjust your eyes. This is not something from Mad Max or any other science fiction movie. This is the Tesla Cybertruck and it’s fair to say no-one expected it to look like this. Tesla claims it will be the toughest pick-up truck in the world, with a stainless steel body that can handle a 9mm bullet or a hit from a sledge hammer, and comes with super-strength glass.
