Haval Australia planning new SUV range by 2021, EVs by 2022

China’s biggest domestic SUV maker, Haval, is having a much tougher time selling cars to Australians than it expected, but the still-ambitious company suggests its next wave of products will have a better go at it. The company is developing a new modular architecture for domestic left-hand drive (LHD) purposes – as well as right-hand drive (RHD) for Australia, India and South Africa – to underpin its next generation model line-up.

2018 BMW 8 Series previewed on the track

The 2018 BMW 8 Series has been put through its paces in Italy, as the flagship coupe edges closer to a full reveal. Although the images are new, further detail about the big two-door BMW is sorely lacking. We know there will be an M8, and reports have suggested an M850i will slot into the lineup as well. It's expected to have a 4.4-litre V8 engine under the bonnet, making around 370kW of power, while the M8 is expected to deliver more than 450kW.

Nissan puts Leaf tech to use in electric bus trial

Nissan has repurposed the electric powertrain from the Leaf for a zero local-emission bus trial in Japan. The trial, led by Kumamoto University on Japan's southern Kyushu island, is aimed at tackling the high costs involved in developing electric heavy vehicles. According to the research team, adapting technology from road cars for life in buses and trucks is one way to minimise development costs, accelerating the rate of zero-emissions vehicles in the process.
