Video: Lexus LF-30 electrified concept walkaround

The Lexus LF-30 electrified concept may be far from a production car, but you can consider it a blueprint for the multitude of electrified models the Japanese marque plans to roll out before 2030. First shown at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the LF-30 made its way to Melbourne, Australia, for the first time in November 2020 to serve as a guest of honour at the 2020 Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Tesla Battery Day: More efficient batteries, new AU$35,000 model coming

Tesla's much-hyped Battery Day has indeed delivered a new type of battery cell, which the company says will provide a 16 per cent increase in range. Theoretically, this means a Tesla Model S could offer a range of up to 750 kilometres on a single charge. The new Tesla battery, named the 4680 for its dimensions (46mm by 80mm), reportedly provides five times the energy and six times the power of previous comparable cells.

Now, Nissan has come up with a process that might see it appear on more mass-market cars.
