2021 MG 5 EV wagon: right-hand-drive ready, but ruled out for Australia

A right-hand-drive version of the 2021 MG 5 EV wagon has been unveiled overseas, with the model expected in UK showrooms in October 2020. The MG 5 EV is based on the Roewe Ei5 (shown in these photos) – an electric wagon from Chinese car maker SAIC – and features a 52.5kWh battery powering an 85kW electric motor. MG claims the 5 EV wagon offers a maximum driving range of 344 kilometres on a single charge, based on the real-world driving cycle 'WLTP' test.

Toyota and Subaru are collaborating on a new fully-electric SUV

Images of an upcoming fully-electric Toyota SUV show the striking similarities between it and a Subaru concept shown earlier this year. It's believed the unnamed concept will be the Subaru Evoltis and will share its electric 'skateboard' platform – as well as much of its SUV body – with the mysterious Toyota, first seen in patent filings revealed last month.

Electric BMW 3 Series spied in testing

A fully-electric BMW 3 Series has been spied testing in Europe, with the model expected to join the electrified 4 Series from 2021. Curiously, the camouflaged test vehicle uses the long-wheel-base (LWB) body. The stretched version has only been available in China up until recently, with a right-hand-drive LWB 3 Series being announced for India in June 2020 to replace the axed 3 Series GT. What remains a mystery at this stage is what the new electric 3 Series will be named.

Tesla sues rival Rivian over alleged data theft scheme

Tesla has moved to sue high profile EV competitor Rivian Automotive, accusing the start-up of stealing trade secrets through ex-employees. The lawsuit, filed with the Superior Court of California in the County of Santa Clara, says that the dispute stems from "Rivian’s efforts to misappropriate Tesla’s trade secret, confidential, and proprietary information by recruiting Tesla employees and encouraging them to take such information as they leave Tesla."

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQE or EQC spy photos

Photos of what we're told is an all-new replacement for the Mercedes-Benz EQC have surfaced, despite the current model having only debuted in 2018. It is clear from these photos that the new model, whether a direct replacement for the EQC or a different EQ model all together, is at least around the same size as the EQC we already know. It could, however, be the anticipated EQE.
