Australia's Takata recall: Strict rules and penalties, but little compensation

The compulsory Takata airbag recall announced for all vehicles in Australia affected by faulty inflators will bring penalties of $1.1 million for breaches of the action's strict rules – but owners shouldn't expect much in the way of compensation. Announced today by Michael Sukkar, Assistant Minister to the Treasurer, the recall will be overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Barely anything is given away about the new vehicle, other than that it will be "driverless, electric and connected". From that quote we can expect a vehicle with no traditional steering wheel or pedals, a very open and spacious cabin, along with a range of connected vehicle technologies.
