Environmentally-backwards Australia becoming an “automotive third world," Volkswagen claims

Australia is at risk of becoming an "automotive third world," a local spokesperson for Volkswagen has claimed. Europe, China, Japan and the USA – where the vast majority of the world's cars are built – all have significantly more stringent emission regulations than Australia. As such, local branches and distributors report it is becoming increasingly difficult to justify the importing of newer and more environmentally friendly model variants at the expense of overseas quotas.

Volkswagen Amarok and Ford Ranger likely to miss out on electrification

It's no secret Ford and Volkswagen are co-developing commercial vehicles, including the next-generation Amarok and Ranger dual-cab utes. Ford is responsible for the medium-sized pickup truck, while Volkswagen is leading development of small vans. The two companies are also signed up to share Volkswagen's MEB platform. Hot on the heels of the ID.3 reveal in Frankfurt, a Volkswagen board member revealed the entire VW range will be electrified by 2025... not including the Amarok.

2021 Volkswagen ID.4X spied

The production version of the Volkswagen ID. Crozz has been snapped again this week, with reports suggesting it will bear the ID.4X name when it goes on sale globally late in 2020 or early in 2021. First spotted nearly a month ago, the Volkswagen ID.4X is an all-electric crossover that's roughly between the Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace in terms of physical dimensions, based on the German brand's scalable MEB architecture for electric vehicles.
