Design cues are clearly drawn from the new-generation HR-V, however it's unclear if underpinnings are shared or, instead, if this is a ground-up new car).

Tesla Model 3 outsold by one of the world's cheapest electric cars in China

The Tesla Model 3 has been outsold in China by a $5700 electric micro car, known as the Hongguang Mini EV. In January this year 25,778 examples of the Hongguang Mini EV were reported as sold in China, compared to 13,843 examples of the Tesla Model 3 in the same month. The compact, four-seat, three-door hatchback – which is a collaboration between Chinese manufacturer SAIC and US giant General Motors – weighs 665kg. For reference, that's about half the mass of a Toyota Corolla hatch.

Tesla disputes Chinese recall of almost 30,000 cars – report

Tesla has reportedly challenged a recall for almost 30,000 American-made Model X and Model S cars imported into China, disputing claims there is an issue with the vehicles' suspension and instead blaming the problem on "driver abuse". The recall, lodged with China's State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) by Tesla Motor's Beijing arm, apparently affects Model X and S cars produced between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018, and imported into China.

Chinese brand Nio has a clever plan to make its electric cars cheaper

Chinese electric car maker Nio has a plan to make electric cars more affordable by allowing consumers to purchase its vehicles without a battery, adding the ability to swap in the most appropriate battery pack as needed. The company's 'Battery as a Service' plan (BaaS) enables consumers to save up to 70,000 Chinese Yuan (AUD$14,128) off the purchase price of a Nio model by renting their car's battery for around AU$197 per month.
