Rolls-Royce has a new Ghost, and we've just tested it in Black Badge guise. The model gets darkened trim, a little more power, and slightly firming suspension tuning, but it mostly appeals for the edgier image it creates.

Nissan plans to invest more than $17 billion over the next five years on vehicle electrification. The plans call for the launch of 15 electric vehicles covering the Nissan and Infiniti brands, and a handful of concepts unveiled today may just hint at what's to come.

Mercedes-Benz also has an EV concept. Set to be revealed in early 2022, Mercedes' new concept is called the Vision EQXX, and the German automaker is using all of its resources, including F1 know-how, to give the vehicle world-leading specs, like, for example, a real-world range of more than 600 miles.
