All-new 2022 Range Rover revealed!

Great luxury and tech than ever for fifth gen Range Rover

It may look similar to the previous version, but over 50 years in the making, this is in fact, the all-new fifth generation Range Rover, which will also be the last to feature traditional ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) power units. Initially being made available with a series of six-cylinder petrol, mile-hybrid, plug-in hybrids, and diesel engines, as well as a BMW-sourced 4.4-litre V8, an all-electric version of this car will also be introduced in 2024. So much new technology has gone into this car that 125 patents have been filed.

Kia EV6 Full Review

Full written and video review of the all-new Kia EV6 in both RWD and AWD guises

It makes sense. Korean companies Hyundai and now Kia, appear to be leap-frogging more recognised and established car makers in the race to create desirable, usable and quality electric cars. The 2022 Kia EV6 has just gone on sale, and is Kia’s version of Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 – kind of. Discrepancies in dimensions and battery packs, maintain sufficient distinction to present these as very different offerings.
