2021 BMW iNext interior and exterior spied again

The BMW iNext crossover has been spied again, although it's not clear if iNext name will carry over for production. While the latest iNext prototype wears less camouflage than earlier vehicles, there are still plenty of false body panels, especially around the front and rear of the car, as well as around the D-pillar area. The front fascia is largely blocked off and we're unable to see what BMW has decided to do with its signature double-kidney grille.

Kia Futuron concept revealed

The Kia Futuron concept has been revealed at the 2019 China International Import Expo, which is currently under way in Shanghai. With its long bonnet, swept back windscreen and short overhangs, the design of the Futuron's body wouldn't look out of place on a sports car concept. Except, of course, the Futuron is a coupe crossover which rides on a tall suspension setup.

Hyundai launches barcode labels so emergency services can detect hybrid and electric cars

Hyundai Australia is fitting barcodes on the windscreens, front door pillars, and under the bonnet of all its hybrid and electric vehicles so emergency services and rescue crews can find out in a matter of seconds how to disable the battery pack and prevent a potential fire. The barcodes – the most obvious of which is on the top right corner of the windscreen – are accessed via a QR reader embedded in most smartphones.

Infiniti readying new infotainment system

Infiniti will give its most important 2020 models a new dual-screen infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, in the critical North American market. Although it already has a dual-screen infotainment system in its stable, Nissan's luxury arm has treated it to a number of updates, including an updated navigation system with Google imagery, and the ability to update maps with over-the-air updates.

NSW adopts electric car and hybrid warning labels on rego plates

Hybrid and electric vehicles sold in NSW from this year must have an ‘EV’ (electric vehicle) warning sticker on their registration plates – following a similar requirement from authorities in Victoria since 2013. However, emergency services will still be left guessing in other states which are yet to follow – and even NSW and Victoria cannot agree on common symbols.
