The Lexus IS enters the 2023 model year with only minor updates. Key among them is a Special Appearance Package for the IS 350 F Sport that adds a unique gray finish contrasted by a black hood and roof.

Dutch electric vehicle startup Lightyear is working on a fastback sedan as its first model. The company has revealed that the sedan has edged out the Mercedes-Benz EQS and Tesla Model S when it comes to aerodynamic efficiency.

Another EV startup in the headlines this week is The Ghost Garage. The Michigan company plans to convert classic cars to run on electric power, starting with the original Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
