2018-19 Bentley Continental GT recalled

Bentley has recalled the 2018-19 Continental GT, over concerns about the electric power steering wiring harness. According to the company, an improper manufacturing process could trap the electric power steering wiring loom between the subframe and subframe closing plate on right-hand drive cars. If the harness is trapped, it could short circuit and make the power steering assistance cut out. In some cases, it could also pose a fire risk.

Continental's 48-volt 'mild hybrid' revolution

A 48-volt hybrid drive has gone into mass production and could revolutionise the future of hybrid automotive technology. Jointly developed by German automotive tech giant Continental and French carmaker Renault, the 48-volt hybrid drive will make its debut in diesel production variants of Renault’s Scenic and Grand Scenic models this year. Continental is claiming a world first for the technology, although a similar 48-volt is already being used in the Audi SQ7.
