VFACTS: Utes and vans outsell passenger cars in February 2021

Australians bought more new utes and vans last month than hatchbacks, sedans and wagons – or, as the industry defines it, light commercial vehicles outsold passenger cars. It means utes and vans were the second biggest sellers in Australia last month after SUVs, as demand for passenger vehicles continues to wane.

2021 Ford E-Transit revealed overseas, but Australia could miss out on the electric van

The 2021 Ford E-Transit has been unveiled, offering around 350 kilometres of all-electric driving for European customers. Ford says the new electric Transit was measured using the newer and more accurate WLTP test, with the 350km range available thanks to a 67kWh battery, sending power to the rear wheels through a 198kW/430Nm electric motor. On the stricter EPA test cycle used in the US, the E-Transit records a less competitive 202km range figure.

Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert recalled

Peugeot Citroen Australia has issued a recall for the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert vans over concerns the middle seatbelt could be faulty. The French automotive group reports: "The front central passenger seat belt could unclip from the buckle when braking or avoiding obstacles". "If the front central passenger buckle unclips, the seat belt would not secure the passenger in the event of sudden braking or an accident, and there is a risk of serious injury."
