The unlikely cars reversing the COVID-19 sales slide

As Australia braces for a recession, some surprising new cars have bucked the sharp downward sales trend. New-car sales fell by 35.3 per cent in May compared to the same month the previous year, following a shocker in April (down 48.5 per cent). Both represented the biggest declines in at least 30 years. While sales of utes and four-wheel-drives have picked up in the lead-up to June 30 and as many motorists plan to holiday at home, there are some niche models that have also performed well.

Volkswagen to release smaller ID.1 and ID.2 electric models by 2024

Volkswagen is looking to fortify its electric assault with the addition of two smaller models in the ID range – the ID.1 and ID.2, as reported by Car. The models will be built on familiar, scalable MEB electric architecture – the same seen in the larger ID.3 and ID.4, however costs will be brought down by reducing features and driving range. “We can shrink the MEB architecture with less content to get the cost down,” Volkswagen brand chief Ralf Brandstätter told Car.
