Mini has been selling an electric version of the Hardtop for a number of years, and now the car's powertrain has been added to the Convertible. Just 999 examples of the electric Convertible are destined to be built, at least for this generation, and they're all earmarked for Europe.

Mercedes-Benz AMG has revealed its 2023 Formula 1 race car, and the new contender marks a return to a black livery. This time there's a performance angle, as the car is mostly black due to its carbon-fiber body being left unpainted to help save weight.

The White House has laid out the rules for companies seeking a piece of the federal government's $7.5 billion investment in charging infrastructure, and in doing so has confirmed that Tesla will help the cause by opening up 7,500 of its chargers to EVs from other brands.
