Mustang could become a Ford sub-brand – report

Mustang is arguably Ford’s most iconic and well-known nameplate, globally. Now Ford's considering on capitalising on the equity in that name and expanding the Mustang stable. Murat Gueler, the design chief for Ford Europe, told Autocar, “We’ve talked about building a family.” For those already concerned about the scope creep of an electric crossover bearing the Mustang name, rest assured there are no plans for a wide range of Mustang EVs in different sizes.

Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid not for Australia just yet

While Toyota is the clear market leader for regular petrol-electric hybrid cars – which charge their onboard battery pack during normal driving, but only offer a limited electric boost – the company is yet to introduce a plug-in hybrid locally despite the technology being available overseas.

2020 Aston Martin DBX revealed: Australian launch due next year

Nearly five years since it was first previewed in concept form, the covers have finally come off next year's Aston Martin DBX SUV, destined for Australia with a $357,000 price tag. When the DBX concept was unveiled, there was no Rolls-Royce Cullinan, no Bentley Bentayga, and no Lamborghini Urus. Now, with all three in the game, along with the trendsetting Porsche Cayenne, the time appears right for Aston Martin to step onto the field.
