Tesla Model 3 to get air suspension option – report

If you want to buy a new Tesla Model S or Model X in Australia, you’re only able to specify one with adaptive air suspension. Model 3 buyers, however, don’t have that option… yet. Electrek reports it should be coming very soon, a leaked parts catalogue appearing to confirm its imminent introduction to the Model 3 line. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, however, has contacted Electrek to refute the pending introduction of the feature.

BMW won’t railroad customers into electric cars, promises to give buyers power of choice

BMW says petrol and diesel cars will continue to be a part of its line-up and it does not plan to railroad customers into electric vehicles. While the German manufacturer is poised to introduce 25 new electrified models over the next three years – including 12 purely electric cars and 12 plug-in hybrids – it has reaffirmed its commitment to petrol and diesel power for decades to come.

Nikola Badger: Hydrogen-electric ute revealed with 965km range

Nikola Motors has revealed its hydrogen and battery-powered rival to the Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian R1-T, with up to 675kW and 965km of range. There's no battery magic going on to extract that incredible range. Unlike the battery-only R1-T and Cybertruck, the Badger blends a lithium-ion battery pack with a hydrogen fuel cell. Battery-only range is a claimed 483km, while the 120kW fuel-cell adds another 483km.

2021 Volkswagen 'T7' Multivan/Caravelle spied

The next-generation Volkswagen Multivan people mover has been spied during cold weather testing in Sweden. Compared to today's Multivan and Caravelle (pictured at the bottom of this article), the new model has a longer front overhang. While this was obvious in earlier development mules, which used body panels from the current T6.1 van, in production this will be much less pronounced as the dashboard and front passengers have been moved further back.
