Volkswagen used this week’s Consumer Electronics Show to roll out the Budd-e concept. The new name mimics the Bulli name that in Germany refers to the original Type 2 van, sold here as the Microbus, which makes sense as the concept is thought to actually preview a new Bus coming around 2019.

A prototype for BMW’s next-generation 5-Series has been spotted. This one has less camouflage gear than previous testers, which allows us to see the car’s true shape. The new 5-Series is due out later this year, as a 2017 model.

BMW was the top-selling luxury car brand in the United States in 2015, a title it’s managed to hold on to for the past four years. However, the race was extremely tight this year with just a few thousand cars separating the top three brands.
