The eight employees were charged with fraud, false certification, and other violations related to emissions laws, news agency Reuters reports.

Volkswagen website crashes following ID.4 launch

The Volkswagen USA website went down for two hours overnight, as thousands of would-be customers attempted to preorder the new all-electric ID.4 SUV. The manufacturer's American branch posted to Twitter at 1:48am (AEST) “Phew! We're flattered. Appreciate the interest in the ID4 - you guys broke our site! We're rebooting and will respond when we're back up.” It was two hours before the company confirmed the domain was functioning again.

A smaller Cybertruck will 'probably' come to rival HiLux

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed the electric car maker will "probably" release a smaller version of the Cybertruck overseas, potentially allowing the incoming electric pick-up to compete with popular local offerings like the Toyota HiLux or Ford Ranger. In prototype form, the Cybertruck measures roughly 5.4m long, 2m wide and 1.9m tall, but Musk has previously suggested a production version may need to be smaller – although the Tesla CEO has changed his tune on that matter in recent months.
