UK prepares to ban new petrol and diesel car sales from 2030

The United Kingdom is set to introduce a sales ban on all new cars with internal combustion engines (ICE) driven by traditional fuels such as petrol and diesel. While hybrid vehicles will be available initially, the UK government has made clear its intention to only allow vehicles with zero emissions to be sold from 2035.

Barely Holden on: 165 cars sold in October as dealers clear final stock 

More than half of Holden’s dealer network have taken down their iconic signs and it now seems the brand is close to clearing all its cars, with just 165 vehicles reported as sold last month – and fewer than 300 estimated as remaining in the network. Perhaps some consolation for diehard Holden fans, the Commodore was the brand’s biggest selling nameplate in its final days, due in part to a fleet order for NSW Police general duties vehicles.

Kia closes in on Top 4 sales spot in 2020, prepares to overtake Ford, Mitsubishi

Korean car maker Kia is on track to finish fourth outright in 2020 – behind market leader Toyota, long-standing number two Mazda and third-placed Hyundai. A decade ago, Kia wasn’t even inside the Top 10. It has been the fastest growing car company in Australia over the past 10 years. Although Kia sales so far this year are down by 12 per cent, the decline is not as sharp as those of its nearest rivals.

Interview: Ford Australia boss Andrew Birkic

The new boss of Ford Australia, Andrew Birkic, has been in the top job for a little more than a month, but he has been with the Blue Oval brand for more than 26 years. We asked the former global brand manager for Ford Ranger about plans for a V6 Ford Ranger Raptor, the chances of the Ford Explorer, F-150 and Bronco nameplates ever returning to Australian showrooms – and if Ford will stay in V8 Supercars once Holden is gone. Below is an edited transcript of CarAdvice’s Q and A session.
