Chinese tech giant LeEco has revealed some details about its future electric car plans. The company, which just this week opened its headquarters for the United States, plans to give away cars for free and make money by offering various services.

Formula One team Red Bull Racing has started testing a new cockpit protection system. Called the Aeroscreen, the protection system is shown to withstand a wheel flying towards it at 140 mph.

Land Rover’s Discovery Sport enters its second year on the market with some tech updates and a styling pack. It’s still only got one powertrain option, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder good for 240 horsepower.

You'll find all of these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
