2021 Ineos Grenadier off-roader enters next prototype phase

The 2021 Ineos Grenadier, hailed by many as the spiritual successor to the old-school Land Rover Defender, is one step closer to becoming a reality. After securing the old 'Smartville' production facility in France for building the rough-and-tumble four-wheel drive, the team at Ineos behind engineering the Grenadier are now busy turning around a group of so-called ‘2b’ prototypes.

2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo wagon teased, Australian launch expected

While powertrain details are yet to be confirmed, the Taycan Cross Turismo is all-but-certain to retain the twin-motor set-up offered in the 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S sedan variants (which develop 390kW, 420kW and 560kW respectively).

Photos reveal so far there is limited stock of the mid-grade ST and, it appears, Nissan is going to give the space cab market a push.
