Lincoln Aviator plug-in crossover revealed

Ford Motor Company's premium division, Lincoln, is putting its bleak days behind it and making bold American luxury cars again. The Aviator 'preview' SUV being shown in New York this week continues the trend. It's a three-row crossover SUV to sit below the Navigator, and the company's first plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The vehicle you see is nominally a concept, but expect few changes to appear on the production model due next year.

2018 Mercedes-AMG C63 revealed

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its facelifted C63 range in New York, with a mildly overhauled exterior and a tech-heavy interior but, in shocking news, no more power. What's going on in Affalterbach? Power comes from the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as before, making the same 350kW and 650Nm in 'base trim', or 375kW and 700Nm in range-topping C63 S guise. The 100km/h sprint takes 3.9 seconds in the S, and 4.0 seconds in the regular C63 coupe.

Nissan Leaf battery-swap program headed to Japan

Nissan has started a new program in Japan, allowing Leaf owners to exchange their old batteries for refurbished ones. The program, set to start in May this year, is designed to lower battery replacement costs, and help electric vehicles maintain their value on the used car market. Initially, you'll be able to fit a refurbished 24kWh battery for ¥300,000 ($3,650). The range will be expanded to include new 24kWh ($7950), 30kWh ($9780) and 40kWh ($10,020) options after launch.
