THE WEEK THAT WAS: Trying tiny Toyota while GM reports

For once, I escaped being shackled to the laptop for a couple of days this week to sample Toyota's new Verso-S (Ractis in Japan), which, after a gap of some five years, replaces the old and much-loved Yaris Verso. More on that next week. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, all eyes were on GM's 2010 results and, we trust, your eyes were on our Mr Golding's gimlet-eyed review of same.

For once, I escaped being shackled to the laptop for a couple of days this week to sample Toyota ‘s new Verso-S (Ractis in Japan), which, after a gap of some five years, replaces the old and much-loved Yaris Verso.

Volvo was in the news this week as it made key new appointments and, just today, announced that it will maybe build a second plant in China as well as the one already confirmed.

Speaking of ‘Swedish’ car makers (if no longer owned by Swedes), we learned that Saab proprietor Spyker is ditching its sportscars.

We published the results of our readership survey on the outlook for 2011 and BMW lifted the lid a little more on its electric vehicle plans.

Some of that must be rubbing off on luxury car unit Rolls-Royce. This week they announced they are trialling an electric Phantom, to see what potential customers think. You should definitely only hear the clock then…

Have a nice weekend.
