2021 BMW iX3 electric SUV revealed early, Australian debut confirmed 

The upcoming 2021 BMW iX3 electric SUV has been revealed, thanks to a set of leaked marketing images that offer a clear look at what's to come. The EV (electric vehicle), based on the BMW X3, is expected to be officially unveiled in the coming days or weeks, with an Australian launch confirmed for 2021. As expected, the iX3 plays much closer to the look of its regular X3 stablemate, just as the i4 will share much with the design of the upcoming new 4 Series.

Toyota LandCruiser V8 dead: yet another report spells the end of an icon

Read it and weep, Toyota LandCruiser V8 fans. Yet another report claims Toyota is well progressed with plans to phase out V8 petrol and diesel power for its heavy duty four-wheel-drives globally. And yes, tragically, that includes the next generation Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series, and any updates to the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series workhorses. All of them are likely to get V6 turbo diesel power and/or a V6 petrol hybrid option; none of this has yet been confirmed.

Abarth 595e rendered

Fiat's new-generation 500 hatch will be sold exclusively in electric 500e form, which will be a delight to many, but what about fans of the existing Abarth 595 hottie? Fiat and its performance arm Abarth have yet to offer diehards any word of an electrified performance-focused 500, but with the regular 500e claiming a mere 9-second sprint to 100km/h… there is certainly room for a hero hatch.
