Hyundai has released the first details on its new all-wheel-drive system dubbed HTRAC, which will be debuting in the 2015 Genesis sedan due out next year. HTRAC is an electronic system that will allow the driver to adjust the level of torque being directed between the front and rear wheels, and it was honed on one of the toughest tracks in the world, the Nürburgring.

Volvo has partnered with some research teams to develop a revolutionary new electrical storage system. The system consists of nano structured batteries and super capacitors that are fused with carbon fiber panels which can form the doors or roof of a car.

The 2015 Chevrolet Impala will be able to run on both compressed natural gas and gasoline, featuring fuel tanks for both. As a result, it also features a 500-mile range, with drivers able to switch between the two fuels at the press of a button.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
