Morgan EV3 development halted

Development of the all-electric Morgan EV3 three-wheeler has been put on hold due to problems between the automaker and its drivetrain supplier. Steve Morris, managing director of Morgan, told Autocar the company has stopped work on the EV3 as Morgan's "current EV powertrain supplier is no longer able to fulfil the project within the terms of the contract". He said Morgan had expected Frazer-Nash Energy Systems to supply a "turn-key powertrain" for the automaker's first-ever electric car.

Kia: Sub-Sportage SUV due in September/October 2019

Kia is expected its sub-Sportage SUV, based on the SP Concept revealed in February, to be in Australia during September or October next year, plugging one of the major gaps in its range. The SP, which hasn't been revealed in full, will be built in Korea for Australia, although variations on the model will be made in India for that market when production kicks off next year. It'll be partially developed Down Under, too.

2019 Ford Mustang Ecoboost pricing and specs

Ford Australia has announced pricing and specifications for the new 2019 Mustang Ecoboost, joining the V8-powered GT models that arrived in local showrooms earlier this year. Priced from $49,990 plus on-road costs for the Ecoboost Fastback manual, the MY19 model is a significant $4000 dearer than the model it replaces, though this is offset by an increase in standard specification.

2007-2017 Ford Mondeo added to Takata recall

Ford has added the 2007-2009 and 2014-2017 Mondeo to the ever-growing list of vehicles in line to have their faulty Takata airbags replaced. As with all Takata recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant in affected vehicles degrade. In a collision where the airbag is triggered, there's a risk the inflator will rupture under too much internal pressure, sending metal shrapnel shooting into the cabin.

2019 Toyota Supra spied inside and out

The all-new Toyota Supra has been snapped by spy photographers once again, this time showing parts of its cabin. Earlier this month a leaked parts catalogue gave an indication of the Supra's interior components – pretty much confirming most bits will be shared with the related BMW Z4 – and these latest images add to that.
