Fisker has released three teaser images of its real $130,000 electric car called the EMotion, and it’s definitely a tamer look than the Hot Wheels concept car from a few months ago. It looks like an alien ship from Independence Day disguised as an early-2000s Japanese luxury car.

Mercedes is reportedly planning to spin-off a new, all-electric sub-brand for its electric vehicle efforts, similar to BMW’s i-brand. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Mercedes is an automaker with a history full of great names, which is exactly why they shouldn’t try anything new.

A Tesla spokesperson confirmed today that the official price for the all-electric affordable Tesla Model 3 sedan will be $35,000 before incentives, and way cheaper with incentives when it goes on sale. That’s something to get excited about, sure—if we didn’t already know all of this months ago.
Faraday Future has made a lot of wild claims, but does it really have what it takes to be the next Tesla?
