Volvo and Geely plan to combine their combustion engine operations

Volvo and Geely, its Chinese parent, have announced they intend to merge their internal-combustion engine (ICE) operations in the near future. When Volvo and Geely's engine operations are merged, the new division will supply internal combustion engines and hybrid powertrains to all members of the Geely family, which also includes Lotus, Lynk & Co and LEVC, the maker of London's black taxi cabs.

2020 Audi Q7 60 TFSI e launches in Europe, unsure for Oz

Audi has launched a new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of its facelifted 2020 Q7 SUV, dubbed the '60 TFSI e'. Unlike the outgoing Q7 e-tron, which paired a V6 turbo-diesel with a plug-in electric system, the new 60 TFSI e pairs a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 with a 100kW electric motor and 17kWh battery pack – much like the related Bentley Bentayga Hybrid and Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid.

Lexus SC430: Takata recall expanded

Lexus Australia has expanded its Takata airbag recall for the SC430 sports car, now extending all the way to MY2010 versions. As per the original recall issued in November last year, affected vehicles were fitted with 'like for like' Takata airbag inflators as part of previous recalls. These could still be potentially faulty after several years. For this recall, the affected Lexus SC430 models will have their faulty airbags replaced with non-Takata components.
