Nissan 370Z-based mule spied

Is there light at the end of the tunnel for Nissan Z fans waiting for a 370Z replacement? A test mule based on the 370Z has been snapped at the Nurburgring, suggesting Nissan has started work on a replacement for the long-serving 370Z coupe and convertible. Although it looks very 370Z, there are a few notable changes here. The nose has been updated with six new vents above the lower intake, while the fog lights have been replaced with... blank space.

Why don't Australians buy more EVs?

Driving range, price, and limited knowledge of the available choices are three major impediments to improving battery-electric vehicle (EV) take-up in Australia. That’s the quick and unsurprising summary of a market survey from analytics firm Nielsen, called Caught in the Slow Lane, Australian Adoption of Electric Vehicles. As the name suggests, market penetration of electric vehicles in Australia is far lower than most equivalent markets across Europe, Asia and the USA.
