GM won’t sell Holden badge to Australia for $1, Chinese sale unlikely

General Motors will not sell the iconic Holden logo to Australia for $1 – or offer it to a Chinese car company that might use the famous badge to rebrand its vehicles. Holden boss Kristian Aquilina told a Senate Inquiry in Canberra today that General Motors in Detroit will formally decline a request earlier this year by Queensland Senator James McGrath to offer the Holden badge to Australia for $1 to preserve its future.

Tesla's Cybertruck could change colour with extreme temperatures

The highly anticipated and controversially-styled Tesla Cybertruck may be able to change colour when heat is applied to the body. According to a story published on electric-car website Electrek, the technique known as 'tempering' could potentially allow owners to choose from a limited range of colours, thanks to the body of the Cybertruck being made of stainless steel. When heat is applied to some types of steel, the colour will change through a chemical reaction, the report says.
