        Hyundai Staria Has Major Space Van Vibes

        • This is the Hyundai Staria minivan. It’s going into production, but not for the U.S.
        • It comes in configurations seating two, seven, nine, or 11, and on the nine-seater, the second-row seats can swivel to face the rear.
        • The Staria will be fully revealed later this year, and we wish it was coming here.

          • Meanwhile, Porsche and hyper-EV specialist Rimac are in talks for a joint venture that would lead to a future Bugatti they would build together.
          • It would make sense to use the platform that underpins the Rimac C_Two, but that kind of detail will come later.

            The move toward widespread electrification is set to transform the very top of the car market as well as its lower reaches. Last year we told you about discussions between Volkswagen Group and Rimac over the future of Bugatti, with VW reportedly offering to cede ownership of its grandest brand in exchange for increased equity in the Croatian hyper-EV maker.

            Yet that didn’t happen, and last month Porsche—ultimately owned by Volkswagen—spent more than $83 million increasing its existing 15.5 percent stake in
