Mercedes-Benz launches direct-to-buyer EQC sales model

Mercedes-Benz is going to sell the EQC electric car in Australia in a new way — one that reduces the role of conventional dealerships but claims to address buyer concerns. It's also the latest brand to offer online sales for specialist models, something the likes of Toyota, Subaru and Genesis have previously tried, and in some cases continue to offer.

Audi E-Tron tweaks unlock more range

Audi has used a number of small tweaks to free up 25km of extra range from its electric E-Tron SUV. The changes were debuted on the E-Tron Sportback revealed at the Los Angeles motor show, but have been passed on to the more practical E-Tron. According to Audi, the regenerative braking system – which uses the electric motors to harvest energy usually lost to heat when you brake – has been reworked to reduce residual brake torque, created by the brake calipers sitting close to the discs.
