Kia e-Soul electric car converted to a commercial vehicle in Europe

Korean car maker Kia has added the electric e-Soul Cargo – an e-Soul city hatch converted for light commercial duties – to its line-up in the Netherlands, however it’s unlikely the model will see Australian showrooms. The Kia e-Soul Cargo trades its rear seats for a flat-floor with six tie-down anchors. A safety partition is also added between occupants and cargo, and a (presumably vinyl) wrap on the rear windows keeps cargo away from prying eyes.

2020 Renault Trafic automatic now on sale

Renault has finally added an automatic transmission to its big-selling Trafic van, reflecting a growing trend towards commercial buyers ditching three-pedal setups. The six-speed EDC (efficient dual-clutch) transmission is lifted from none other than the Megane RS hot hatch, which seems a counterintuitive choice. Then again, it's clearly designed for high-torque applications in both vehicles.

Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert recalled

Peugeot Citroen Australia has issued a recall for the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert vans over concerns the middle seatbelt could be faulty. The French automotive group reports: "The front central passenger seat belt could unclip from the buckle when braking or avoiding obstacles". "If the front central passenger buckle unclips, the seat belt would not secure the passenger in the event of sudden braking or an accident, and there is a risk of serious injury."
