London Electric Vehicle Company launches taxi-based VN5 van

Geely-owned electric vehicle manufacturer, London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), has launched its VN5 medium-sized van. LEVC's new commercial offering is underpinned by the same rear-wheel drive architecture as used with its TX London Taxi. It also employs the same running gear – a 110kW/250Nm electric motor, assisted by a three-cylinder, 1.5-litre, Volvo-designed turbo-petrol engine, acting as a range extender.

Is this for real? Chinese car company delivers keys to new cars by drone to combat COVID-19

Chinese car maker Geely claims to have come up with a unique way to hand over new cars while keeping a safe distance during the COVID-19 outbreak – by getting a drone to deliver the keys. While it's unclear whether this is just a PR stunt, the company claims the service will be offered in select locations, using a remotely-controlled drone to deliver keys to front doors and even to the balconies of new-car buyers.

Lynk & Co 05 revealed

Upstart Chinese brand Lynk & Co has unveiled its fourth model, the 05. It’s an SUV that measures 4592mm long and 1879mm wide with a 2734mm wheelbase, so roughly the size of a Toyota RAV4 or Honda CR-V. Where it differs from those established SUVs is in its styling. Featuring a rakish coupe SUV silhouette, it’s reminiscent of the much more expensive Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and BMW X4.

Swedish manufacturer Volvo could soon feature engines from the Mercedes-Benz range, according to a new report out of Germany. Manager Magazin claims the German marque's parent, Daimler, is considering working closer with Volvo's Chinese parent Geely – it's also worth noting Geely's boss and principal owner, Li Shufu, owns a 9.7 per cent share in Daimler.
