Hydrogen growth “infrastructure dependent”, says Hyundai

The rollout of more hydrogen fuel cell cars is being held back by a lack of refuelling infrastructure, according to Hyundai Europe president and chief operating officer Allan Rushforth.

Mazda CX-3 inches closer

A new sub-compact Mazda CX-3 SUV has already been penned and appears very close to making its debut.

The company hasn’t confirmed it will build a CX-3 model to rival the likes of the Holden Trax, Peugeot 2008, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Juke, according to Mazda Australia public relations manager, Steve Maciver.
