Ford's top-selling F-150 is about to come in for a redesign, with plug-in hybrid and electric options and possibly a new V-8 all planned. Some variants may even feature independent rear suspension, which would be a first for the F-150.

Vacuum cleaner giant Dyson plans to launch an electric car in 2021 and new patent drawings hint at its design. They show a sleek, 3-row crossover not unlike the Tesla Model X.

A new generation of BMW's 8-Series has arrived, and soon it will be joined by a high-performance M8 variant as well. The M8 is set to debut some new technologies, including an electric motor that replaces the conventional vacuum booster in the braking system.
