Ford's battery-electric F-150 is due in 2022, and it's set to be the most powerful F-150 to date. Word on the street is that Ford will revive the Lightning name for it, which would be fitting as the electric F-150 will be a street truck just like the old F-150 Lightning.

Volkswagen Group will use its in-house software company Cariad to design computer chips for future self-driving cars. The move will provide VW Group with greater flexibility concerning design requirements while also allowing it to develop new features faster.

Remember the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive? Only a handful were made last decade and now one of them is up for grabs. The only problem is that the asking price is more than double what the car originally cost.
