Audi e-tron quattro promises '30 per cent' of range from regenerative braking

Audi has continued the drip-feed of information about its upcoming e-tron quattro, revealing its aggressive regenerative braking system in a video shot at Pikes Peak. According to the company, regenerative braking is able to contribute "up to 30 per cent of the electric SUV's range", using a combination of three systems: manual coasting regeneration using the 'shift paddles', automated recuperation when coasting and automated recuperation when braking.

2019 Ford Territory unveiled

The Ford Territory has been revived, but not quite in the way many had expected or hoped. Although it won't be available in Australia, we did play a role in its development. The new Territory looks to be a JMC Yusheng SM330 crossover with an updated front fascia, new headlights, and a Ford grille. It's not clear yet if any changes have been made to the rear of the car.

Smith Street and Brunswick Street – the busiest thoroughfares in the area – will maintain their 40km/h limits.
