American electric car startup Rivian has unveiled its first product. It's a mid-size pickup truck offering 750 horsepower and a battery with up to 180 kilowatt-hours of capacity, or enough for more than 400 miles of range on a single charge. A seven-seat SUV variant is also coming.

Mercedes-AMG's GLC63 S is now the fastest SUV around the Nürburgring. An AMG engineer managed to crack the old record held by the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio during some routine testing last week.

Honda engineers are out testing the production version of the uber-cute Urban EV concept. Judging by our spy shots, the car will be a virtual carbon copy of the concept, right down to the cameras in lieu of side mirrors.
