2018 Audi A3 recalled

Audi Australia has recalled 55 examples of the 2018 '8V' A3 over concerns the mounting for the rear head restraints may not be correctly welded to the rear seat backrest. The German company reports "the mounting for the head restraint is not correctly welded to the outer backrest frame for the rear seat", which means the head restraint may not support and protect a passenger as intended in an accident. Audi says the fault could pose a risk of "serious injury" to the rear-seat occupants.

One third of Norway's 2018 new car sales were pure electric

The growth of electric vehicle sales in Norway continued in 2018, even though the overall market contracted. While overall sales were down 6.8 per cent to 147,929, electric vehicles continued to gobble up market share as they are exempt from most taxes, and are eligible for free parking and charging points. Figures supplied by the Information Council for Road Traffic (OFV) show 46,143, or 31.2 per cent, of those new passenger cars were zero emissions vehicles (ZEV).
