Jaguar Land Rover loses $6.7 billion during financial year

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has confirmed it lost £3.6 billion ($6.7 billion) in the financial year ending 31 March 2019. Around £3.3 billion ($6.2 billion) of that figure comes from the company writing down the value of its goodwill, real estate and facilities, as well as some of the costs related to slashing its worldwide workforce by 4500 people or around 10%. Taking extraordinary items out, the company had an operating loss of £358 million ($667 million) during the last financial year.

BMW X5 xDrive25d announced, Australian launch confirmed

BMW has revealed a new, entry-level version of its X5 SUV for the European summer, set to arrive in Australia late in the third quarter, or early in the fourth this year. The X5 xDrive 25d maintains the all-wheel drivetrain of its pricier siblings, but subs the inline-six engine for a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel making 170kW and 450Nm. It's mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission, as uses a claimed 6.2L/100km on the combined cycle.
