Tesla may be about to improve cold-weather range in Model 3 – report

The Tesla Model 3 may be about to receive a heat pump, designed to improve range in cold-weather climates. According to a report from American electric vehicle news site Electrek, customers have begun taking delivery of the Tesla Model 3 in the US with a smaller 'frunk' (the front storage area where the engine would traditionally live), suggesting the company could be making room for a heat pump.

Old Peugeots never die, they just get made in Azerbaijan: Peugeot 405 still in production!

It seems old Peugeots never die, they just get made in Azerbaijan. Late last year it was announced that Iran Khodro Industrial Group would cease the manufacturing of the Peugeot 405 in Iran, ending a 26-year lifespan of a car that had not been built in its native France since 1997. But if 33 years isn’t long enough for the 1988 European Car of the Year to remain in production, the tooling and licence have been sold to the Azerbaijani industrial consortium, Azermash Khazar.

Pink McLaren 570S crashes in central London

A bright pink McLaren 570S has been extensively damaged in central London after reportedly colliding with a VW Golf. Simon Tuhill, the London Fire Brigade Borough Commander for Camden, reported the accident on Twitter. “We go to many incidents involving crashed vehicles but not that many where one of those vehicles is a McLaren,” the post read. “Crews from Euston attended this RTC on Montagu Mansions Marylebone last week to make the scene safe after a driver lost control.”
