Rivian electric ute and SUV planned for Australia as early as 2022

While the debate about electric cars continues in Australia, a battery-powered ute might be just around the corner. US start-up Rivian says it is planning to sell its R1T double-cab pick-up and R1S family SUV in Australia, with a possible showroom arrival as early as 2022. At the 2019 New York motor show, company spokesman Chris Wollen told CarAdvice: “Right-hand drive is coming, it’s been in the plans from the beginning”.

2020 Mini Clubman revealed: Australian launch due fourth quarter

Mini has unveiled a mid-life facelift for its compact Clubman wagon. Changes over the outgoing model are subtle and mainly lie in the aesthetics department. Up front there’s a revised grille with longer horizontal slats, flanked by optional matrix LED headlights and all-new LED fog lights. Around the rear, LED tail-lights are now bundled as standard, with a version of the recently-refreshed Mini Hatch’s Union Jack LED taillights available as an option.

2019 Aston Martin Rapide E revealed

The first all-electric Aston Martin is upon us, unveiled today at the Shanghai motor show. Just 155 examples of the Rapide E will be built, and they’re almost all spoken for. Rather than a full, series production model, it’s a technical test bed for Aston Martin, as the brand looks to push electrification across the range through the 2020s.
