Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid not for Australia just yet

The new Toyota RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid – the most powerful and quickest RAV4 to date – will go on sale in the US by the middle of next year, but Australian customers will need to wait a little longer. While Toyota is the clear market leader for regular petrol-electric hybrid cars – which charge their onboard battery pack during normal driving, but only offer a limited electric boost – the company is yet to introduce a plug-in hybrid locally despite the technology being available overseas.

Ford Mustang Mach-E electric car ready for Australia

The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV could come to Australia – the only barrier is price, and how many local buyers might want one. A Ford representative in the USA confirmed to CarAdvice at the Los Angeles motor show overnight the Mustang Mach-E will be made in right-hand drive. So far, the UK is the only right-hand drive market announced to take the vehicle, however Australia is likely to follow soon after given there is no technical impediment and no emissions tests to meet.

Mini's hottest ever hatch has been revealed. The new JCW GP has just two seats, packs 225kW... and is only available with an automatic gearbox. This is the third Mini JCW GP. Like its predecessors, it's significantly more focused than the regular Mini line-up – the rear seats are gone, the body has been stiffened up, and there are bespoke mounts for the engine, transmission and suspension.
