For years under the control of Malaysian automaker Proton, British sports car brand Lotus is about to join Volvo, Lynk & Co and Geely as car brands under the control of China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group. Zhejiang Geely today agreed to purchase a 51 percent stake in Lotus.

The 2018 GMC Yukon Denali is the latest of General Motors’ full-size SUVs to receive the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission. The advanced unit promises to deliver improvements in fuel economy, smoothness and response time.

The 2017 Wörthersee Tour kicks off today and one of the stars is a Golf GTI hybrid concept. The concept features an electric motor at the rear axle and may just hint at the future of the popular Volkswagen hot hatch.
