2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee to have three-row option - report

The next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee will reportedly be available with the option of three rows of seats. According to the Detroit News, the new crossover is due to go on sale in the US as a 2021 model year car, with production scheduled to begin towards the end of 2020. Initially only three-row versions will be manufactured. A two-row version of the Grand Cherokee should start trundling down the production line around six months after its three-row sibling.

Lotus planning electric hypercar - report

Lotus is planning to launch a £2 million ($3.53 million) pure-electric hypercar, according to new reports from Europe. According to coverage from Autocar, the flagship will be built in incredibly limited numbers, and serve to demonstrate owner Geely's technical prowess to the world. Details are hard to come by, with the report arguing the hypercar project is "shrouded in secrecy" at Lotus HQ, but speculates the car will use a bespoke electric powertrain, and carries the codename Omega.

Aston Martin unveils reversible EV conversion for classics

Aston Martin is developing a reversible electric "cassette" powertrain, allowing its classics to be driven in jurisdictions that outlaw the use of internal combustion engines. To demonstrate the idea, the company has unveiled a proof-of-concept model using the 1970 DB6 Mark II Volante as its starting point. According to the sports car maker, the DB6's new all-electric powertrain is housed within a self-contained cassette, which is placed on the original engine and gearbox mountings.
