The electric revolution isn't just for cars — in the powersports segment, Nikola is leading the way with the NZT. The NZT has the capability you'd expect in a side-by-side utility vehicle, seating four with a fully-independent suspension with 20" of travel. But underneath, you can specify up to 590hp and a staggering 722 lbs-ft of torque from two electric motors. That's enough to push the top-tier NZT from 0 to 60 in a supercar-like 3.5 seconds, with a price well under six figures. BUY NOW FR...

Chinese electric car startup Byton is unveiling its first car at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, and for good reason — tech is becoming more a part of cars than wheels and motors. The crossover concept's exterior is pleasing but not over-the-top, but the interior is where things get interesting. A 49-inch curved touchscreen display spans the width of the cabin, and Byton is promising it will make it into the production version. Byton also promises 250 miles of range and a lightning-fast 30 m...

Designer Joey Ruiter is adept at reimagining common modes of transportation — the Snoped and Tinnie 10 are proof. The Consumer Concept Vehicle is his latest, taking on the conventional car. As with his prior work, it sports an angular design finished primarily in black. The front "grille" is a two-way mirror, with an air intake on its edges and ultra-bright LEDs behind it that shine 54,000 lumens onto the road ahead. The slab-like cabin all but hides the wheels, giving the appearance of floating...
