The Cadillac Lyriq is two years too soon

The Cadillac Lyriq wasn't quite a bait-and-switch but, as the dust settles on the delayed unveil of the automaker's new electric flagship, you'd be forgiven for feeling like the EV was a tad premature. Two years premature, in fact: the luxury crossover Caddy revealed this week is actually a show car, the automaker conceded.

Elon Musk’s Cybertruck backup plan is unexpectedly normal

Elon Musk’s Cybertruck backup plan is unexpectedly normal

Tesla's backup plan should the Cybertruck flop is something a lot more straightforward, CEO Elon Musk has confirmed, again insisting that gut reaction rather than any sort of traditional market research shaped the still-divisive pickup. Unveiled in November 2019 - though not expected to go on sale until late 2021 at the earliest - the Cybertruck certainly isn't styled to suit everybody and nor, Musk has said, is it really intended for every market.

There’s terrible news if you were waiting for the 2021 Kia Soul EV

One of the most eagerly-anticipated new electric cars has been scratched from the US launch roadmap, it's reported, with the Kia Soul EV apparently no longer coming to America. Announced in late 2018 alongside the third-generation Soul update, the 2020 Soul EV had already missed its original launch date for the US market. That, it seems, was only a precursor to worse news.

Tesla just sued Rivian

Tesla has sued EV startup Rivian, accusing it of poaching employees and asking them to bring confidential information with them, a charge the Amazon-backed automaker denies. While Tesla acknowledges that it's commonplace for people in the industry to move between car companies - and indeed has swelled its own ranks with talent lured over from other automakers - it alleges that Rivian encouraged new hires to bring trade secrets along with them too.
