Volvo's new Care Key allows you to limit the top speed of your own car

Volvo is making a concerted play to reduce speeding deaths in Australia with the launch of its new Care Key, an inclusion on all models that will allow owners to electronically limit the top speed of their car. From model-year 2021, all Volvo cars will receive the Care Key as standard, giving Volvo owners the opportunity to pre-set their vehicles' maximum speed before handing the car over to younger family members or less-experienced drivers.

Many people – including several CarAdvice team members – were forced to do a last-minute dash across the border in order to avoid being locked out of their home state when case numbers began to increase in NSW, Queensland and Victoria.

Tesla Model 3 electric car tops UK sales charts in December 2020

The Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle has seemingly done the unthinkable and topped the UK new-car sales charts in December 2020 – outselling the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Fiesta for the month. It is the second time the Tesla Model 3 has led the UK new-car sales race in a given month. The first time was in April 2020 when the market plummeted by 97 per cent; Tesla won the sales race with just 658 vehicles reported as sold.
