Hey Toyota, where’s the new Tundra BEV?

It's not unfair to say we've been waiting for quite some time for the new 2022 Toyota Tundra.

Elon Musk admits “I don’t care” if Tesla Cybertruck is a flop

Elon Musk is known for being fairly offbeat in his management style, but the Tesla CEO is positively laid-back about the possibility of the Tesla Cybertruck proving to be a failure. Unveiled in 2019, Telsa's first pickup is one of a number of electric trucks on the calendar at this point, but there's no denying that it's still the more unusual to look at.
