Hyundai's Ioniq 5 N high-performance electric compact crossover has just gone on sale, but over in Korea a dedicated racing version is about to be launched. It's called the Ioniq 5 N eN1 Cup, and it is being developed for a new electric category in the Hyundai N Festival one-make racing series.

BMW is working on a mid-cycle refresh for its M3 sedan, and the updates will extend to the M3 Touring wagon sold overseas. Prototypes for both body styles are currently out testing ahead of a likely debut late this year or early next.

Audi is working on a redesign for the A7, and this time an Avant wagon body style will join the regular Sportback hatchback. A prototype for the Avant has been spotted. It will take over for the gas-powered A6 Avant after the A6 line goes the electric route.
