  • Ford F-150 facelift: an even beefier front end is among other aesthetic changes that will eventually filter to Australia’s RHD subassembly
The cheerful Volkswagen ID Buzz EV should hit before the end of the year

New utes coming out in 2024

Utes and pick-ups have very long development cycles, so they are refreshed less often when compared with SUVs or regular cars. As a result, we’re only expecting about 10 utes to undergo updates this year that you need to know about.

New hybrids coming out in 2024

The market for new hybrids – dominated for so long by Toyota in Australia – will open up a little more in 2024 with new entrants from other manufacturers. However, the number of new hybrids pales in comparison to the number of new full EVs.
