Peugeot poised for plug-in hybrid and electric-car rollout

Peugeot Australia is poised to introduce a range of plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicles to sell alongside its petrol-powered range in a bold attempt to attract new buyers by reacting quickly to our changing taste in cars. Over the next five years, every model in the Peugeot line-up will have the option of hybrid or electric power – but head office in France says it will let the local distributor decide which models to sell here.

Mitsubishi not planning Ford Ranger Raptor rival

Mitsubishi says it has no plans to introduce a rival to the Ford Ranger Raptor ute – or mount a counterattack with a high-powered turbo diesel V6 even though it has access to one thanks to the recent alliance with Nissan-Renault. Ford and Volkswagen are expected to have turbo-diesel V6 power as part of their next generation pickups due within a few years from now, and Toyota is on record as saying it wants to make up for the HiLux’s power deficit.

Lighter, more powerful: Williams debuts new battery technology

Williams Advanced Engineering has revealed a new battery module it claims is lighter but more power-dense than conventional lithium-ion units. Autocar reports the new lithium-ion battery module uses Adaptive Multi-Chem technology that could make battery packs up to 30 per cent lighter and 37 per cent more energy dense. This could deliver longer range and higher power without making the battery packs any physically larger.
