The new Golf GTI based on the eighth generation of Volkswagen's Golf hatchback has landed. The car is bound for the United States, albeit with a lower output than the 245 horsepower that the rest of the world is getting. A new Golf R should follow in the summer.

Jaguar has been spotted testing an updated version of its E-Pace. It's part of Jaguar's plan to update or redesign every model in its lineup over the course of the coming year.

China's Techrules has given up plans for its Ren extended-range electric supercar for now, but the company will still sell the microturbine range extender that the Ren featured. Techrules' microturbine generates 45 kilowatts, runs on renewable fuels, and can be used as a range extender, heater, or a standalone power generator.
