2020 FCAI Australian vehicle emissions report: Toyota tops passenger cars, tanks on utes, vans and 4WDs

A damning report released today by the car industry has exposed just how far behind Australia’s vehicle emissions are compared to world’s best practice – prompting calls for a mandatory Federal Government code and better quality fuels. In Europe car makers are fined if they don’t meet stringent vehicle fleet average emissions targets, and the policy has been one of the main drivers of the rapid development of electric cars there – even though customer demand is still relatively low.

2021 Citroen C5 teased ahead of April 12 launch

The 2021 Citroen C5 has been teased, ahead of its unveiling on April 12. The vehicle – which spy shots and teasers suggest will take the form of a high-riding, SUV-inspired liftback – is expected to be underpinned by the Stellantis group's EMP2 platform, currently shared with Peugeot, DS and a range of other brands. Petrol, diesel, and hybrid powertrain options are also likely, with the 1.6-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel offerings from the Peugeot 5008 slated to carry over.

The upcoming, V8-powered 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor R has been spied testing in the US alongside its arch-rival, the new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. Car makers often purchase competitors' vehicles to benchmark and compare their new models against – and it comes no surprise to see Ford testing its new F-150 Raptor R alongside Ram's 1500 TRX, as the dune-jumping, supercharged super-trucks are direct rivals for one another.
