New vehicle sales in Australia have been receding for 11 successive months – compared to the corresponding month in the previous year – which after four years of sales records tumbling has come as a bit of a shock to the system. Headwinds like the overall slowing economy, weak house prices in NSW and Victoria, looming finance sector reform, the drought, and of course the imminent federal election are all playing funny buggers...

2019 Hyundai Ioniq PHEV v Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comparison

Australians aren’t exactly rushing to buy electrified cars compared to a number of equally mature markets with greater purchase incentives and public charging networks.

2019 Mitsubishi Triton bullbar: AEB tech's big change to frontal protection bars

The bullbar industry is set to face a new challenge, as more utes come equipped with autonomous emergency braking systems that need a clear view over the bonnet. As is the case with the recent Ford Ranger – which is available with AEB and has a factory-approved, AEB-compatible bullbar – the new Mitsubishi Triton has a completely redesigned bullbar, so it doesn’t impede the AEB cameras in the windscreen...

Mitsubishi Engelberg concept teased

Named after an alpine resort and town almost smack-bang in the middle of Switzerland, the Mitsubishi Engelberg will be some sort of electrified crossover concept. We don't know if the Engelberg will be a pure-electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid.
