2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS revealed, Australian launch December 2021

Meet the S-Class of electric vehicles: the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS has been officially unveiled, ahead of its Australian launch in December 2021. The new EQS will slot into the top of Mercedes-Benz's passenger car and all-electric EQ line-ups (for now), with aerodynamic concept-inspired styling, a widescreen dashboard and a flexible electric architecture that allow it to shape up as the German brand's rival to the large electric sedan pioneer, the Tesla Model S.

2021 Polestar 2: Single-motor variants announced with up to 540km range

The 2021 Polestar 2 range has been expanded with the addition of two new single-motor variants, trading performance for a lower starting price. Sitting below the existing all-wheel-drive 78kWh Polestar 2 introduced at launch, the two new Polestar models lose the range-topper's rear motor to become front-wheel-drive, and are paired to a choice of 'Standard Range' 64kWh or 'Long Range' 78kWh batteries.

When discussing Australia's dearth of electric cars and their related infrastructure, the debate always comes back to consumer choice – or lack thereof. However, with a list of incoming launches, promised models and electric-powered variants on the cards, the limited-choice excuse will hopefully soon be a distant memory. From mass-market small SUVs to high-performance prestige cars, the all-electric line-up for 2021 is varied and houses something for every buyer.

Australians support electric-vehicle policies, study finds

This includes a government subsidy on the purchase of new EVs along with a ban on the sale of new fossil-fuelled cars by 2035. Key results from the survey reveal two in three Australians – or 62 per cent – agree with the government subsidies for the purchase of EVs.
