Nio Eve concept, 2017 SXSW

There’s a new contender in the race to become the next Tesla. It’s called Nio, and on Friday the brand marked its launch in the United States with the unveiling of the Eve concept. The concept previews a self-driving electric car due on the market in 2020.

McLaren’s 720S made its debut last week at the 2017 Geneva auto show but examples of the car are already prowling U.S. roads. One was spotted on the weekend in North Carolina.

Prototypes for Audi’s next-generation S8 have been spotted for the first time. Audi isn’t expected to pull any surprises so expect a twin-turbo V-8 up front and drive going to all four wheels.
