Skoda planning electric hatchback based on Volkswagen ID.3 – report

Skoda is planning to bring a new Volkswagen Golf-sized electric hatch to market in 2024. As a Volkswagen Group brand, it's believed the new Skoda hatch will be based on the 'MEB' architecture which underpins the Volkswagen ID.3 and Cupra Born, according to Spanish publication motor.es. In the ID.3, up to 150kW/310Nm is delivered to the rear axle from a single electric motor, offering a range between 330 and 550 kilometres on a single charge under the WLTP standard, depending on the variant.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid delays still stretch six months or more, despite production ramp-up

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid customers are still obliged to wait six months or more to take delivery of their new cars – despite a significant ramp up in production and what Toyota claims is a fair allocation system. The waiting time for a new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid stretched up to 10 months last year and the company had claimed delays had eventually been reduced to three or four months in most cases. However, demand has not waned and waiting times have started to climb again.
