2020 Drako GTE

2020 Drako GTE

Drako’s all-electric supercar is surely promising loads of performance

With electrification gaining a strong foothold in the car industry, we’re bound to see an increase in the number of supercars that harness the power generated by a battery pack and a pair of e-motors.

Drako’s GTE ups the ante with a quad-motor setup and the complete lack of differentials. Instead, the supercar uses a smart algorithm that sends just the right amount of torque and power to each wheel, for what Drako calls the ultimate driving experience. Let’s see what that means, shall we?

Does It Get Any Better Than Seeing Supercar Blondie Drive the GFG Style 2030?

The 2030 is a Saudi Arabia specific electric supercar

Supercar Blondie has all the luck when it comes to getting her hands on hypercars, supercars, and even concepts, and she got even luckier when she got to drive the Saudi Arabia exclusive GFG Style 2030. Her maiden voyage in the concept took place during the Riyadh Car Show in Saudi Arabia, where the Style 2030 was showcased alongside 1,200 other beautiful cars, a preview before the Style 2030 is shown off at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. But, thanks to Supercar Blondie’s video, you don’t have to wait to get up close and personal with it.

This Ford Mustang Mach-E Pickup Rendering Could be a Perfect Electric Ranger Raptor

This Ford Mustang Mach-E Pickup Rendering Could be a Perfect Electric Ranger Raptor

I honestly don’t know how to feel about this

Ford’s decision to use the “Mustang” name on the Mach-E electric crossover opened a lot of doors, some of which Ford may or may not want to be opened. One of these doors leads to a long and window road riddled with speculation about Ford’s future plans for the “Mustang” name. Is the Mustang Mach-E a one-time deal that Ford did to generate interest in the electric crossover by having it carry the “Mustang” name? On the flip side, does Ford have plans to use the iconic nameplate on other non-muscle car models? Rendering artist Aksyonov Nikita wondered the same thing, but instead of waiting for an answer, he decided to create a rendering on one possible non-muscle car model that could use the “Mustang” nameplate in the future. Meet the Ford Mustang Mach-E Truck.

Tesla Just Broke Its Promise on Cybertruck Production and We're Not Surprised One Bit

Tesla Just Broke Its Promise on Cybertruck Production and We’re Not Surprised One Bit

As it turns out, that $39,000 Cybertruck will arrive last instead of first

When Tesla launced the Cybertruck, we were promsied that the two cheaper versions – the single motor, $39,900 model and the dual-motor $49,900 model – would go into prodution in late 2021 while the more expensive tri-motor model with the Tesla Plaid drivetrain would arrive to the production line in late 2022. Now, Tesla has doubled back on its word and will delay the cheapest model until late 2021 so that the more expensive tri-motor Plaid model will enter production earlier.

A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger

A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger

Would you take this monster to the race track?

The Tesla Cybertruck is arguably the most shocking car design in recent decades. Not only wedge-shaped bodies have gone out of fashion in the early 1990s, but no other carmaker thought about this shape as a design that could bring notable benefits in the aerodynamic and rigidity departments... of a pickup truck.

Tesla did, and while many car enthusiasts hate the Cybertruck’s looks, it could actually get weirder than that. And this rendering from Jonsibal proves just that.

Was Tesla's Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk's Own World?

Was Tesla’s Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk’s Own World?

With all the talk going on about the Tesla pickup truck, we wonder if it can actually work out there in the wild

The launch event of the Tesla Cybertruck began with a quick slideshow where images of well-known trucks from the past five decades rolled on the screen as Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about a need for change and evolution. The Cybertruck, as a result, was always going to be daring in more ways than one but has Tesla gone too far? Is this really what truck buyers have in mind when thinking about switching from a gas-guzzling truck to an electric one? Do they even want to switch to an electric truck at all?

Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch

Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch

And here I was, rooting for the Blue Oval to whoop the Cybertruck’s boxy ass!

Remember the tug-of-war rematch challenge that Ford laid out to Tesla on Twitter? Yeah, well, that’s gone for now. Apparently, the tweet from the Ford X’s Vice President Sundeep Madra was just a tongue-in-cheek statement and not a challenge per se.

Just when it looked like we’ll have an “apples to apples” face-off, Ford has chickened out. Oh boy! Mr. Madra, what have you done?

Engineering Explained Exposes Why the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War Was a Scam

Engineering Explained Exposes Why the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War Was a Scam

Although it got all the hype, Tesla was bound to be exposed sooner or later

When Tesla announced the 300,000-pound towing capacity for the Cybertruck, Ford was quick to release a video of its F-150 electric prototype that pulled 1.25 million pounds. Instead of immediately replying to this, Tesla took its own sweet time to throw a punch at Ford. In turn, Tesla tied the Cybertruck’s ass to a Ford-150’s with a rope and engaged in a good old fashioned tug-o-war challenge.

You must’ve seen the video; the Cybertruck pulls the F-150 with utmost ease, even on an inclined surface. However, this was as gimmicky as it could get. Famous YouTube channel Engineering Explained has put out a video explaining why this battle made no sense and it is much simpler than the “two-wheel-drive/all-wheel-drive argument.”

Tesla Cybertruck Craze: 10 Electric Trucks You Should Know About

Tesla Cybertruck Craze: 10 Electric Trucks You Should Know About

Some of these will make it into production in a couple of years

It’s been a week since Elon Musk unveiled the Tesla Cybertruck and the hype is far from over. We’re still in awe of its performance figures, people are still making fun of how the armored windows cracked when hit with steel balls, and truck enthusiasts are still upset over the polygonal design.

But the Cybertruck is still a couple of years away from production and it’s not the only electric truck in the making. As a result, I put together a list of 10 haulers that might go into production over the next two years.

As Cybertruck Hype Calms Down, Conventional Electric Pickups Like the Neuron T/One Have Started Popping Up

As Cybertruck Hype Calms Down, Conventional Electric Pickups Like the Neuron T/One Have Started Popping Up

It sure looks promising, but can it take on the giants of the industry?

The Tesla Cybertruck has garnered enough attention over the past week not only on itself but on the electric pickup segment as a whole. Although only Tesla and Rivian have gained prominence here, there are many other automakers out there like Bollinger, Atlis, and Lordstown, just to name a few.

However, a small electric manufacturer called Neuron EV has come under the scanner at the expense of the Cybertruck. Neuron’s electric truck, the T/One, is being pitted against Musk’s wunderkind primarily on the basis of looks. The general consensus is positive for now, but the T/One is much more than its appearance. Can this underdog trump all the odds and go up against the Cybertruck, R1T, and Ford’s upcoming electric F-150?

The Arrival of the Cybertruck Signals Tesla's Shift to Technology Over New Models

The Arrival of the Cybertruck Signals Tesla’s Shift to Technology Over New Models

Now it’s probably time to focus more on that self-driving tech

Musk recently announced that the Cybertruck will be its last new model for the time being and it plans to focus more on future technologies. This makes sense because Tesla already has a strong lineup without a single dead product in it. It also has a lot of technologies that are still vaguely in their beta phase and several models that it actually has to bring to market (Tesla Roadster, Tesla Semi, Model Y, and now, the Cybertruck.) So, it looks like Tesla will now be focused on its exiting productions and technology over the next few years. If that’s the case, will the full self-driving tech finally be developed and deployed in all its vehicles by the end of 2020?

Here's What We've Learned Since the Launch of the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck

Here’s What We’ve Learned Since the Launch of the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck

A lot has happened since Musk brought that ‘out of the box’ thing on stage

The 2021 Tesla Cybertruck has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced. The launch is done and dusted but people still can’t stop talking about it. The biggest reason for this is the “apparent” glass shattering fail that may or may not have been a blunder on stage. Nevertheless, the internet is filled with memes about the truck for a whole lot of other reasons and the only one benefitting from this is Tesla – that’s called free publicity. Here’s a list of all the things we’ve learned since the launch of the Cybertruck - the most-anticipated vehicle in a long time.

Elon Musk Really Expects Us To Believe His Excuse for Why the Tesla Cybertruck's Windows Broke

Elon Musk Really Expects Us To Believe His Excuse for Why the Tesla Cybertruck’s Windows Broke

It sounds like an excuse, but you can never really tell with Elon Musk

The unveiling of the Tesla Cybertruck came with loads of surprises, including the truck’s controversial looks, impressive performance capabilities, and the late-game arrival of the Cyberquad ATV. But none of these moments compared to the moment when lead designer Franz von Holzhausen smashed two of the Cybertruck’s “armor glass” windows with a metal ball.

The incident spurred Elon Musk’s now-famous expletive-laden reaction, and days after the embarrassing on-air episode, Musk has come out and explained why the armor glass windows cracked when it was hit with the metal ball. You can believe Musk’s explanation or not, but it does sound like someone who’s trying to come up with an excuse to save some face.

Ford Hopes That Fake V-8 Engine Noise Will Help You Forget that the Mach-E Isn't Really a Mustang

Ford Hopes That Fake V-8 Engine Noise Will Help You Forget that the Mach-E Isn’t Really a Mustang

It’s not the real thing, but Ford hopes that you don’t care enough to know the difference

The Ford Mustang Mach-E proudly carries the nameplate of the iconic muscle car, but as an electric crossover, the Mach-E noticeably lacks the aggressive exhaust note that has come to define the Mustang name. Ford knows this, and instead of letting the Mach-E sound like a wispy electric car, the Blue Oval decided to inject an audible soundtrack that would convey the typical sounds of power and performance without compromising the crossover’s all-electric persona. The result is a sound that imitates an internal combustion engine without one actually being there.
