Had to share with you the ultimate motor home, one with under-floor heating, rain shower and even a garage for storing a car. Called the “Lamborghini of the leisure vehicle world” for its high torque engine, the “Empire Liner” comes from the German motorhome maker Morelo. It includes a panoramic roof that provides views from the spacious double bed. And this rig is not small, coming in at 37 feet long and powered by a 7.7 liter six. Well equipped, and “built using only the highest quality materials,” the MSRP is something around $475,509. No word on whether any will ever make it to the U.S. market.

 Globally, September was a good month for Jaguar Land Rover with sales up 28%. The old bottom line was helped by strong demand for its products in China. Sales here in North America rose by 23%.

 Hyundai said drivers have now racked up more than 1,500,000 miles in its Tucson Fuel Cell vehicles in California. More than 125 of the fuel cell crossovers have been delivered since its introduction in 2014.

  BMW will unveil a new 5-Series on Thursday saying it is “on the way toward automated driving.” More to come.

 Germany’s Parliament has passed a resolution calling on the European Commission to ban the sale of vehicles with combustion engines starting in 203. If adopted, only zero emission vehicles will be allowed on EU roads.
