Poland’s first supercar, the Arrinera Hussarya, was finally revealed to the public this week.

Cadillac substantially updated its ELR extended-range electric car. The luxury coupe packs more power and torque, has improved all-electric range, and is $10k cheaper than before. We wonder if that will be enough to get the cars moving off dealer lots.
