2021 Audi E-Tron S: superfast electric SUV due in Australia next year

Audi is out to prove electric cars don’t need to be boring, or slow. The German car maker has released details on the Audi E-Tron S electric SUV range ahead of its Australian arrival in the second half of next year. It promises sports-car performance – with a 0 to 100kmh time of 4.5 seconds – and has an “overboost” mode that delivers a phenomenal 370kW/973Nm output for up to eight seconds, designed for safer overtaking.

Lotus shows off plug-and-play digital dash

A new digital instrument display could give Lotus owners an advantage on weekend track days, or outline to drivers where they went wrong. The digital dash has been developed by Lotus as a plug-and-play system for owners of Elise and Exige V6 models built after 2008. With 4000 race tracks pre-loaded, the digital cluster uses GPS technology to record lap times, providing real-time feedback and allowing drivers to download the data to a laptop for greater scrutiny and analysis.
