2021 GMC Hummer EV pre-order slots gone within 10 minutes

The all-electric 2021 GMC Hummer EV has reportedly filled every pre-order place within just 10 minutes of last week’s high-profile reveal – although, securing a slot likely required more speed than wealth. Priced from US$112,595 (approximately AU$160,000), 'thousands of examples' of the Edition 1 pick-up were secured with a deposit of US$100 (AU$140). Currently only available in the American market, the Hummer EV will eventually be offered in dual-cab pick-up and SUV configurations.

Peugeot planning 'sustainable sales growth' in Australia through electrification

Peugeot, through its local distributor Inchcape, is looking to grow sales in Australia by way of a two-stage rollout of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles. The first step is to launch the all-wheel-drive, plug-in hybrid Peugeot 3008 SUV (below) halfway through 2021. This will likely be followed by an all-electric Peugeot 208 city hatch toward the end of 2022.

Tesla disputes Chinese recall of almost 30,000 cars – report

Tesla has reportedly challenged a recall for almost 30,000 American-made Model X and Model S cars imported into China, disputing claims there is an issue with the vehicles' suspension and instead blaming the problem on "driver abuse". The recall, lodged with China's State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) by Tesla Motor's Beijing arm, apparently affects Model X and S cars produced between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018, and imported into China.
