2021 Volkswagen Caddy interior spied

The next-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been spotted undergoing cold weather testing in northern Europe. Unlike the prototype cargo van spotted back in April, this vehicle is a people mover variant – as evidenced by the functional glass windows for the rear sliding doors and rear quarter panels. It also features a lift-up tailgate, as opposed to the load-lugging model's barn doors.

Ferrari EV pencilled in for after 2025

Louis Camilleri, the Ferrari CEO, has poured cold water on the idea of an electric Ferrari, at least in the short term. Speaking to media outlets, including Reuters, Camilleri said, "My sense is the electric [model] will come out after 2025". The key factor holding back an electric prancing horse is the fact "battery technology is not where it should be yet", which means there are "significant issues in terms of autonomy, [and] in terms of speed of recharging".

Lynk & Co 05 revealed

Upstart Chinese brand Lynk & Co has unveiled its fourth model, the 05. It’s an SUV that measures 4592mm long and 1879mm wide with a 2734mm wheelbase, so roughly the size of a Toyota RAV4 or Honda CR-V. Where it differs from those established SUVs is in its styling. Featuring a rakish coupe SUV silhouette, it’s reminiscent of the much more expensive Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and BMW X4.
