Rolls-Royce's EV Plans Are Starting To Materialize, And There's a Shadowy Secret

Rolls-Royce’s EV Plans Are Starting To Materialize, And There’s a Shadowy Secret

It will be a brand new-model and could be called ‘Silent Shadow’, a play on the Silver Shadow moniker

Just because Rolls-Royce has been tight-lipped about its electrification plans doesn’t mean they don’t have any. At least, that’s what this scoop suggests. According to Autocar, the British automaker is developing a new EV from the ground up rather than plonking an electric powertrain in any of its existing models. A patent for ‘Silent Shadow’ filed late last year further fuels these reports. Will this new model mark the beginning of a new EV era for Rolls-Royce?

Hennessey Introduces a 1,000-Horsepower Ram 1500 TRX That Takes Just 3.2 Seconds to 60 MPH

The production will be limited to 200 examples

Back in September 2020, Hennessey announced the introduction of a six-wheeled iteration of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX called the Mammoth 6x6. The super-exclusive truck was limited to just three examples and was priced at half-a-million bucks a pop. Even though it sounded super exciting, a more practical version of the truck would’ve been a better option. It looks like Hennessey has answered our wishes.

The aftermarket company’s latest project is a 1,000+ Horsepower ‘four-wheeled’ version of the Ram 1500 TRX. It comes with a host of other mechanical additions and features. Hennessey has also announced that it will build 200 examples of this truck.

2021 Toyota Supra 2.0

The GR Supra gets a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine and less fat on its hips

We all know an love - well, not all - the A90 Supra and its 3-liter inline-six mill which, yes, comes from BMW, the co-developer of the Supra-Z4 project.

One year after the Supra’s unveil, Toyota decided to come up with a lighter, cheaper, and presumably equally fun version that’s animated by a four-cylinder mill. Turbocharging is still on the table, as well as a lighter platform for even nippier on-road behavior, despite the natural drop in power. Here’s all you need to know about the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

The German automaker’s entry-level electric vehicle comes with a single-motor setup and a range of around 300 miles

After launching the rather expensive EQC, Mercedes has now come up with a slightly more affordable EV that could be a game-changer for the brand. Called the EQA, it is essentially a GLA that comes with some cosmetic changes and of course, a heart transplant. Interestingly, Mercedes has used a different approach for this car.

The EQA isn’t a wild-looking electric vehicle with radical styling cues and neither is it a rocket off the line, which seems to be the norm in the segment. Not everyone likes to take off the moment you press the A-pedal, after all. So, if the quick, push-you-back-in-the-seat cars are not your thing, here’s a refreshing electric vehicle that will make you smile and let you drive it calmly.
