2018 BMW X2 front bumper design spied

The BMW X2 has been spied again, this time on the back of a transport truck. This latest prototype features less camouflage tape on its front fascia, revealing an aggressive design for the crossover's lower air intakes. Unfortunately the rest of the vehicle wears the same level of disguise as the prototype seen at the end of 2016 during cold weather testing in Sweden.

Timing for both models was confirmed today by Paul Pottinger, communications manager for Volkswagen Group Australia, which also manages the Skoda brand here.

Electric cars ‘need subsidies to get a foothold in the market’: Renault-Nissan chief

The chicken or the egg? Forget that. What about the government subsidy or the electric car? Renault-Nissan Alliance chairman and CEO, Carlos Ghosn, told media this week that in order for electric vehicles to be in the minds of consumers there needs to be government support in the form of subsidies. Without subsidies, Ghosn warned, there is little to no demand from private consumers.
