Caterpillar Inc. has successfully completed a test of the first all-electric large mining truck in Irving, Texas. This battery-electric 793 large mining truck traversed a seven-kilometer (4.3-mile) course, while Caterpillar engineers monitored over 1,100 data channels, gathering 110,000 data points per second, to validate simulation and modeling capabilities.
Just like the Ferrari SP51, only one GAC Barchetta concept exists. This two-seat electric supercar concept does not have a roof or windshield and consists of three main parts, with the first being an ultra-flat chassis that conceals the compact batteries. Think of it as a giant mobile phone with an easily swappable flat-packed battery.
You’ve won’t find this in the upcoming ‘Uncharted 2’ movie, like the Hyundai Beast, but the Genesis X Convertible EV does boast a unique Korean roof architecture-inspired interior. The design is based on the X Concept, a two-door grand tourer, and the X Speedium Coupe concept. No details were revealed about just how much power it makes, although the company says it has the same powertrain as the X Concept.
The Ferrari Purosangue will have some competition next year from the Drako Dragon SUV and its large gullwing-doors. This vehicle is touted as the ‘worlds most powerful production hyper-luxury SUV’ ever, and rightfully so, as it’s powered by four electric motors generating 2000hp, enabling it to hit 60mph in a mere 1.9-seconds.
It’s safe to say that Apple’s electric car won’t be breaking any speed records like the Rimac Nevera EV, which managed to hit 258mph during a recent test at the Automotive Testing Papenburg track in Germany. This was made possible in top speed mode that created an aerodynamic profile that balances drag and downforce to ensure stability at high speed.
Geely’s ZEEKR 009 is an electric minivan unlike any other that we’ve seen, as it has room for 6 passengers, powered by a 140 kWh lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt battery pack good for approximately 511-miles of range on a full charge. Its dual electric motor setup is good for 536 hp, enabling the minivan to hit 62 mph in a respectable 4.5 seconds.
Although not as massive as the Toyota Mega Cruiser, Recon’s GMC Hummer EV AWD electric bike is modeled after its four-wheeled counterpart and is just as powerful for an Ebike. Power comes from twin 750-watt hub motors with a peak output of 2,400 watts that can be experienced in three riding modes: Cruise (RWD), Traction (FWD), and, Adrenaline (AWD).
It’s no Lotus Evanora, but the all-electric 2024 Lotus Eletre SUV will give the Tesla Model X as well as the non-electric Lamborghini Urus some competition next year.

Ken Block’s monstrous electric Audi S1 Hoonitron turns the Las Vegas Strip into a race track for his Electrikhana short film. This one-off carbon fiber Audi is powered by two electric motors that generate 4,424 lb-ft of torque combined, perfect for power sliding around the Egyptian obelisk as well as the sphynx in front of the Luxor.
Set to go into production in Q4 2023, the all-electric Cadillac CELESTIQ is set to become the automaker’s first ultra-luxury flagship, and it even has 3D-printed parts. More specifically, there are a total of 115 parts that have been 3D-printed, including in the body structure, chassis, interior and several electrical components.
