In the recent years, a few automakers from China are making some noise. How about a carmaker from Vietnam?

At the start of the year, Ford announced that it is planning to develop a new electric vehicle that focuses on performance. At the announcement, Ford said that the new performance EV would be named Mach 1. Eventually, the Mach 1 moniker was shelved, but not the performance EV. Now, Ford has released a new teaser that officially previews this upcoming EV.

During the January announcement, Ford said that this performance EV would released in 2020. In March this year, Ford Global Markets President Jim Farley remarked that the performance EV would be like a four-door SUV version of a Ford Mustang. Essentially, this means that the new performance EV would be an electric SUV with the looks or performance of the Mustang, or both.

Now, the recently released teaser image looks like a sketched silhouette of Ford’s new performance EV. It may seem so vague and unclear until a closer inspection reveals that it features the rear end of a Ford Mustang. That basically confirms the relationship of the new performance to Ford’s iconic pony car. However, this is a teaser image, and a sketch nonetheless, which means that it final looks may differ from the Mustang but retain some cues that indicate its high-performance nature.

Rolls-Royce is experiencing overwhelming sales success with its first sports utility vehicle, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. In fact, the ultra-luxurious SUV is surpassing the carmaker’s sales expectations. At this point, some people are already expecting the brand to release a smaller version of the Cullinan. But to their dismay, Rolls-Royce has already shut down the possibility of creating a smaller SUV that would complement the Cullinan.

Rolls-Royce chief executive Torsten Muller-Otvos told AutoCar in an interview that the carmaker has already completed its model lineup when it launched the new Cullinan SUV. The ultra-luxurious utility is the fifth and latest model of the carmaker, joining the Phantom, Ghost, Wraith and Dawn in Rolls-Royce lineup. The remarkable success of the Cullinan is bringing smiles to the top management at Rolls-Royce. According to Muller-Otvos said early sales of the Cullinan have exceeded expectations, calling customer reaction to the luxury SUV as brilliant.

Nonetheless, the British carmaker isn't keen to add a new model, especially a smaller SUV, into its current lineup. Muller-Otvos remarked that Rolls-Royce is already pleased with its lineup, noting that there is no demand for a new SUV model among the brand’s ‘ultra-luxury’ buyers. He said that Rolls-Royce strategy is to maintain its high-end price position -- not moving the brand into lower-price segments just for the sake of getting higher sales.

A decade ago, BMW invented the luxury coupe-SUV segment with the X6. And it is only this year that Audi decided to join them with the first ever Q8 SUV. This model is new to the Q family of high riding vehicles, giving customers both versatility of an SUV, and elegance of a five door coupe.

The size of the Q8 is pretty much like the Q7’s dimensions. But because of its sloping roofline design, it looks like it sits closer to the ground. Its wheelbase measures almost three meters (118 inches), a huge cabin, for which Audi says is superior compared to their competitors within its segment, namely the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.

Moving on to the Q8’s capacity, it has a larger boot that can hold up to 605 liters (21.3 cubic feet) of your bags when the rear seats are in place, and can be expanded to 1,755 liters (61.9 cubic feet) when folded. To make it easier for us to explain, the boot can fit two golf bags in a transverse direction. As standard, the tailgate is electrically operated, but it can also be had with an electric parcel shelf.

Right now, if you check the Mercedes-Benz G Class configurator online, you will be given two options, namely the G500 and the G63. The G500 first came out in January with the launch of the W464 at NAIAS in Detroit, and the G63 made its first appearance in Geneva a few weeks after the first one. For those of you who are looking for a more low end torque, then you will need to wait until the end of the year to place an order for a diesel powered G in Europe.

If you speak to the guys behind the Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog, they will tell you that the diesel G-Class that takes the shape of the G350d 4Matic model will be available in Germany by December. At the same time, production will begin during this time but deliveries will not begin until March 2019 at the earliest. The report then says that dealers will get the first diesel models for potential clients to try out sometime in spring of next year.

You might be wondering what the original identity of the diesel engine is. Well, it is actually the OM 656 that we saw last year together with the S-Class facelift. This was eventually launched in other models like the CLS. In the S350d sedan, it pumps out 286 horsepower (210 kilowatts) and 600 Newton metres (443 pound feet) of torque. Moving on to the S400d, it has a little more output, at 340 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 700 Newton metres (516 pound feet) of torque.

H1 is the first-ever model Hummer developed for the civilian market. The four wheel drive utility vehicle was originally made for the military, to conquer all types of terrains and obstacles. This is why it has got a tough and rugged exterior.

Back in 1992, the H1 suffered backlashes during its production, mainly because it had an uncomfortable cabin and a shortage of power from its engine. Despite its negative traits, the Hummer continued to sell for years, until the automaker called it quits in 2010.

Some people cannot let go of the past though, for instance, Mil-Spec Automotive, a Ute-restoration/modification shop decided to just work on the H1 by looking at its strengths and weaknesses, so it could create the ultimate superstar SUV. And what we could say about the outcome is that it looks impressive!

Three years ago, Rolls-Royce first mentioned the Cullinan, which came to be the most anticipated SUV in the world. It is the opulent brand’s very first high riding model. However, the automaker actually describes it as “an all-terrain high-bodied car.”

Of course, the Rolls-Royce of SUVs is meant to attract rich customers who are looking for a potent, very luxurious, and practical SUV. The automaker’s plan is to attract a younger generation of successful people who are right in the middle of the so-called experience economy.

The Cullinan features an opening hatch, called The Clasp. This in inspired by an era when luggage would be positioned outside of the car to create more space for the passengers. It is easily accessible with only one touch of the key fob button, opening up the 560 liters (19.77 cubic feet) of cargo space. When the rear seats are down, there will be a total of 1930 liters (68.15 cubic feet).
