Great Wall: Next-gen ute outed, 500km electric model confirmed

Great Wall Motors will launch its first pure-electric dual-cab ute complete with 500km of range, and the Australian arm has its "hands up for it". Speaking with CarAdvice today, a Great Wall spokesperson said the company thinks "the Australian market is ready" for a fully-electric dual-cab ute. But it's the car you see here that'll have dual-cab rivals worried, with a tough new look and what sound like (on paper at least) some serious off-road credentials.

2020 Hyundai Venue: New crossover's name confirmed

Hyundai has confirmed the name of its upcoming sub-Kona SUV – Venue. Straying from its usual strategy of naming its crossover models after popular holiday destinations in the American region (Kona, Tucson, Santa Fe and Palisade), the company says 'Venue' references "a place where people want to be seen, or in this case, inside the vehicle". Just a single image of the new model's rear badging has been distributed, showing 'Venue' script across the tailgate like the larger Palisade.

Geneva Motor Show: 10 past concepts we wish made production

Each year the Geneva motor show provides a testing ground of new ideas and concepts for everyone from established manufacturers to design consultancies and dream-weaving hypercar builders. Sadly some of the very best concepts miss their chance at production, be it due to their outright outlandishness, or perhaps because the brands proudly displaying them simply couldn’t get the sums to add up on some of the more courageous design choices.
