2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for nine 2018 model-year S-Class sedans over concerns the Pre-Safe safety system may not engage even if a passenger is in the seat. According to the German marque, affected vehicles may not detect when a seatbelt is engaged, which will see a warning tone sound and a symbol illuminate in the instrument cluster.

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 spied

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has been spotted in snowy Europe this week, ahead of an anticipated reveal before the end of the year. Looking at this pre-production prototype, there's not a whole lot of surprises in terms of the design. The basic shape of the new CLA is there, but with beefed-up AMG bits. Up front is a more aggressive bumper and gaping Panamericana grille, while the rear sees a prominent diffuser treatment with a quad-tipped exhaust.

South Korea plans for hydrogen fuel-cell trucks to replace diesel by 2035

South Korea is seemingly set to require commercial vehicles in the country – including trucks and construction equipment – to use hydrogen fuel-cell drivetrains by 2035. The move is designed to counter “serious fine dust problems” in the country not helped by diesel emissions, according to The Korea Herald. The plan was apparently released by Transport Minister-nominee Choi Jeong-ho and Yoon Kwan-seok of the ruling Democratic Party of Korea.
