Price parity between electric and internal combustion cars predicted by 2024 - Nissan

Electric vehicles will become more affordable, and possibly even become cheaper than conventional internal-combustion engined cars, and it's on track to happen as soon as 2024. That’s according to research conducted by Morgan Stanley and cited by Nissan’s global head of electric vehicles, Nic Thomas, at last week’s Nissan Futures seminar in Hong Kong.

2018 Lexus IS300h, LS500, LS500h recalled

Lexus Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 model-year IS300h, LS500 and LS500h this week, over concerns models fitted with run-flat tyres could experience unexpected deflation. The Japanese marque reports affected vehicles could have tyres subject to an improper assembly process, which could see a crack develop in the sidewall reinforcement layer. If the condition occurs, the crack could expand over time and affect the tyre's deflation, causing the temperature of the tyre to rise.

Mazda to extract 30 per cent more efficiency from internal combustion engine

Mazda remains one of the few automotive manufacturers still publicly committed to the internal combustion engine, despite the trend towards electrification. With that in mind, it's working to extract every last drop of potential from bang-suck-blow engines. The company says its next generation of SkyActiv engines will be able to extract at least an additional 30 per cent thermal efficiency over the just-launched SkyActiv X engine.

2020 Mercedes-AMG GLS63 spied

Last spied around this time last year, the next-generation Mercedes-AMG GLS63 is now wearing fewer false body panels, but is still heavily disguised. Although the prototype is clad from head to toe in camouflage, we can see the new GLS will have a unique set of body panels compared to the closely related GLE.
