The Polestar 3 starts deliveries in the U.S. this summer, and we just spent some time behind the wheel. The electric midsize SUV brings with it clean Swedish design, seating for five, and up to 517 hp, and there's a lot more to like beyond those attributes.

Piech, an electric car startup from Switzerland and founded by the son of engineering icon Ferdinand Piech, is pressing ahead with plans to launch a sports car as its debut model. The car was originally due this year but has undergone a reboot and is now due in 2028.

Rivian has updated its debut R1S and R1T and the vehicles are now the quickest SUVs and pickup trucks money can buy. Thanks to an available quad-motor powertrain with more than 1,000 hp on tap, the vehicles are capable of delivering 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 2.5 seconds. That makes them about as quick as a Bugatti Chiron hypercar.
