2024 Mini Hardtop, 2023 Nio ES8: Car News headlines

A prototype for the redesigned Mini Hardtop was sighted. The fourth-generation hardtop will be offered with a choice of electric or combustion engine drive, but all other hardtops will be electric only.

Nio, a company often referred to as China’s Tesla, unveiled two new SUVs. One is a new coupe-like offering called the EC7, and the other is a redesign of the ES8, Nio’s first model.

Have you ever wondered what the Nissan Z might look like if turned into an SUV? Students at Nissan Automobile Technical College in Japan have developed their interpretation in the form of the Fairlady X concept, which will be shown at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2023 next month.
