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.

2022 Chevrolet Corvette spotted testing in right-hand-drive

The long-anticipated arrival of the Chevrolet Corvette to Australian shores is one step closer with a right-hand-drive (RHD) prototype spotted testing in Detroit. Originally earmarked to be a 'halo' model for Holden, the changing winds of time will now see the Corvette sold through the replacement HSV outfit, General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV). GMSV teased a RHD cockpit of the Corvette in September 2020, but this is the first time we've seen the car as a whole.
