The do-it-all off-roader has returned as a highly customisable and characteristically capable SUV, and will hit the market, like the old model, in short- and long-wheelbase guises. Flick through our eight pages of information, opinion and analysis and see if you think Land Rover is back with a bang.
The Porsche Taycan also showed its face for the first time this week, and promises to rewrite the rules of EV performance with a power output of up to 750bhp, a 0-62mph time of around three seconds and a range of over 260 miles. It will go up against the new Mercedes EQS, previewed at Frankfurt in concept form, in the premium electric saloon segment.
It was Volkswagen, however, that stole the EV headlines this week with the reveal of its new ID 3 electric hatch. First impressions are that this could really be the car that democratises electrification, with overwhelmingly impressive performance capabilities available from a surprisingly low price tag of £25,500.
Elsewhere, Hyundai’s 45 concept previews the brand’s EV design direction, Porsche hints at electric versions of the Cayman and Boxster, Audi lifts the lid on the radical AI:Trail off-road concept, and loads more.
