Nissan R36 GT-R could get hybrid power – report

The 2023 Nissan R36 GT-R may get a hybrid powertrain as part of the automaker's revised model line-up, according to an overseas report. Nissan's Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta told Automotive News of the plans to renew the company's new-car range, with a particular focus on fully-electric and hybrid engines. Arguably the most iconic Nissan, the flagship GT-R coupe, could receive kinetic regeneration technology developed for their Le Mans endurance racing cars.

Tesla Model S hearse revealed: Go extra quietly

Specialist coachbuilders Coleman Milne of the UK and Germany’s BINZ International have revealed their latest creation, a hearse based on the Tesla Model S. Dubbed the BINZ.E, the all-electric hearse starts life as a Tesla Model S, before being stretched and heightened in order to accommodate coffins. Neither Coleman Milne or BINZ International quote performance figures – not that anyone needing the services of a hearse is in a hurry.

NSW streamlines medical forms to assess fitness of older drivers

The process of obtaining "fitness to drive" certification for NSW motorists over the age of 75 has been streamlined and simplified by the state government. Older drivers are, however, still required to undergo an annual GP and optometrist assessment. The documentation can now be completed by a relevant medical professional online and customers no longer need to visit a Service NSW Centre to have it ratified, a Transport for NSW spokesperson told CarAdvice.

Tesla's Cybertruck could get an electromagnetic windscreen wiper

A new windscreen wiper design – first patented by Tesla in late 2019 – could make its debut on the upcoming Cybertruck. According to the website InsideEVs, the patent lends itself to the flat windscreen fitted to the sharply-creased Tesla pick-up. Rather than pivoting from a fixed point as with a traditional system, the patented design uses an electromagnetic block that moves horizontally across the entire length of the windshield.
