For anyone not familiar, it is the soon to be British built replacement for the Land Rover.
Interesting to note they are looking at Diesel, hybrid and all electric drive trains, so sounds like they will be pitching it hard at the military for their new electric ambitions.
No pictures of the vehicle yet, just an artists impression of how the site at Bridgend will look:

It would be nice to see a proper British car again (Ok, with a german/Merc partner) .. on a road near you from 2021..
Just thought I'd create a thread to plot its progress, release, success or collapse..

The story in the link below is a little short on detail but it's been expanded upon on the radio.
This applies from 2022, rather than some kick down the road 2040 date as for EVs, so it looks like it's going to happen.
The limiter is also going to be an "intelligent" limiter which will work on the speed limit of your road. You know those dot matrix signs on motorways where they leave up the 50mph limit for hours after any accident so you ignore them if the road is obviously clear: ignoring is no longer an option.
I'm not a great speeder myself but have a powerful car which lets me get past slow moving vehicles which usually involves speeding for the overtake and that won't be possible.
I know it's the EU but you can guarantee the UK will bring it in as well.
Anyone else see there being a huge premium on current, unlimited, fast cars in the future?

My car has broken down, was wondering if any of you lot have any ideas what the problem might be....
It did not start immediately this morning as it normally does, but did start and drive ok. I went out again a wee while ago and it again took a wee minute to start but then drove ok, maybe with a few “flat spots” with reduced power for a second or so.
I then started it again (took a few turns of the starter motor again) after being at the shops, when I stopped at some lights and was idling it cut out, started it again and drove home, half way there it was cutting out but would restart again (again taking a few turns of the starter before it started) then, after maybe 50ft it did it again, tried starting it again but it wouldn’t “catch”, kept trying but it wouldn’t start, then the lights on the dash went dimmer and it wouldn’t even turn over at all.
Gonna have to take it to the garage, will be heavy steering while I’m getting towed but there’s no way I’m paying for a tow truck, can’t afford it anyway.
It’s a 2.0 diesel Mazda btw.
