The final episode will be shown on Tuesday night and Wood tells fans that he hopes they will enjoy the last show they made for them.

Although Toyota and Daihatsu will engage in friendly competition and maintain separate management styles that capitalize on their respective capabilities, bringing the two together under a shared strategy will enable them to jointly overcome otherwise prohibitive obstacles in the future, including resource-intensive undertakings such as the development of next-generation technologies and entry into business areas with growth potential.

Explaining the decision, Toyota President Akio Toyoda said, “This is an opportunity for us both to stop feeling that we need to go it alone, and trust each other to take full advantage of our respective strengths. In other words, we can now focus on our core competencies. That, I believe, is the key to achieving and sustaining global competitiveness.”

Chevrolet had been planning to introduce a hybrid derivative of the Cruze sedan, and now the first pictures of the sedan have surfaced online.

Being caught as test mule in Michigan by the folks at Motor1, the spied prototype of Cruze hybrid doesn’t reflect a lot of modifications in the exterior styling. However, it doesn’t appear as sporty as the Cruze RS which was revealed in 2015. Also, the majority of the unseen stuff is hidden by the camouflage but the new front bumper and restyled air intakes can be noticed. The company is concentrating more on fuel efficiency than exterior design and hence, the rear end is expected to be more traditional. As for the interior cabin, it would be carried over from the standard model, including the rearview camera and the MyLink infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Under the hood, the Chevrolet Cruze hybrid is expected to get a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine which already does duties to the Volt. Rumourmills are also abuzz that it might be powered by the 1.8-litre, four-cylinder engine, which comes with the Malibu Hybrid. Irrespective of the fact that which engine eventually makes its way to the hybrid sedan, it would use lithium-ion battery pack and at least one electric motor.

It is being learnt that BMW X2 would be unveiled later this year, while it would go on sale from 2017.

Going by the spy-shots, the X2 looks a lot sportier than the company’s entry-level X1 crossover. The front fascia is comparatively shorter, while it flaunts a broad grille which is flanked by huge headlamps. The windscreen looks jaunty with a low roofline and closely packed greenhouse. An upward sweeping beltline, a spoiler mounted on the tailgate and an angular rear window sum up the exterior styling of BMW X2. Being based on the UKL architecture, BMW X2 would get a front-wheel-drive as standard. Although, an all-wheel-drive system would also be available as an option.
