'We’ll always be here to bring you the best in car news'

In this extraordinary period of unprecedented action, fear not as Auto Express will always be here to deliver you the very best in car news

How often in the past couple of years have I spoken about ‘uncertain times’ in this column? Uncertainty, it seems, is the new norm, but there is nothing normal about the situation we find ourselves in right now.

With parts of the world in lockdown, Grand Prix and motor shows cancelled, and the car industry facing unprecedented global challenges, who knows what will happen in the next few days, let alone weeks and months?

One thing I can tell you is that the car industry will do its very best to carry on, while putting its staff and customers first. That’s certainly the message I’ve been getting from the industry bosses I’ve been speaking with in the past few days. As much as possible, they hope to keep factories and dealerships open, while new cars will continue to be launched, even if they’re a little later than originally planned.

As for us, we’ll be working hard to ensure that we bring you the very best car news, reviews and features every week. We appreciate how much getting your copy of Auto Express and your weekly car fix means to so many of you, so if you have any problems getting your magazine, please let us know. We can help by delivering your copy to your home, or even get you set up so you can read the magazine digitally.

If you’d like to know more about how we can help, our team is here for you: call them on 0330 333 9491,email them at subscriptions@autoexpress.co.uk, or contact me directly using the details below.

In this issue we’ve got our first verdict on the model that really democratises electric cars: the Vauxhall Corsa-e. And next week we’ve got the long-awaited first drive of another crucial new Brit – the Land Rover Defender. I can’t tell you what it’s like until then, but I can tell you the story is truly spectacular.

There are plenty more great features heading your way in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to bring them to you.
