Renault Twingo to spur budget Dacia twin

The all-new rear-engined Renault Twingo city car will reportedly be spun off as an ultra-affordable Dacia runabout. German magazine AutoBild reports the as-yet-unseen Dacia version of the Renault Twingo, which was revealed at this month's Geneva motor show, could cost as little as 5000 euro ($7680), yet still be offered with crucial safety items such as anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and at least two airbags.

Rushforth said the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell – which he claims is the only hydrogen fuel cell car currently commercially available in the world – is limited in its application due to a slow rollout of refuelling points.

Holden future product lines : European approach firms for new-generation models

A return to European-sourced Holden cars appears to be gathering momentum.
