Nissan Patrol V8 demand continues to surge as Aussies holiday at home

Australians planning to holiday at home are helping drive a sales surge of the Nissan Patrol four-wheel-drive – even as the overall car market posted two of its worst months in 30 years due to the coronavirus crisis. Nissan Australia has reportedly put in an urgent call for more Patrols out of the factory to keep up with local demand. Sales of the Nissan Patrol have increased for the past three months in a row compared to the same period last year.

Germany to mandate EV charging at all petrol stations

The German government will mandate electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities at all of its petrol stations, according to an international report. Germany’s initiative would see every petrol station in the country offer some form of electric car charging as part of a €130 billion (AU$212 billion) economic recovery package designed to boost electric car sales. The ADAC – a German roadside assistance association – estimates there are currently 14,118 petrol stations in the country.
