Renault Koleos axed in the UK, but remains on sale in Australia

Renault’s top selling passenger car in Australia, the Koleos medium SUV, has had a cloud cast over its future locally, with news the model is to be dropped in the UK. Autocar UK reported the Koleos will be discontinued due to falling demand, with just 1007 registrations in the UK during 2019. Renault UK’s press office confirmed the Koleos would be cut from the line-up.

Tesla's electric truck, the Semi, has been put into service transporting Model 3 sedans to dealerships.

Dodge reveals 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat, the world's most powerful SUV

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has been revealed, with the model instantly laying claim to the title of the most powerful SUV in the world. Producing 530kW from a supercharged 6.2-litre V8, the Durango SRT Hellcat takes the title from the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk – with the Dodge offering only two kilowatts more than the Jeep. The Durango SRT Hellcat, with a towing capacity just shy of 4000 kilograms, can do the 0-60mph sprint in 3.5 seconds and a 400m drag race in 11.5 seconds.
