Do you need to change a tire but don’t know how? Here’s how to change a tire in 10 simple and easy steps.
It’s hard to believe it was only 10 years ago that the first all-electric cars and SUVs hit the market in the United States. Back then, there were only three models available, each of which had limited production runs, due to their prohibitively high price tags (over $100,000 per car!). Although they are still not exactly mainstream and far from cheap, nearly every major auto manufacturer has at least one all-electric model available on the market today—and many more are expected over the next several years. The even better news?

The Polestar Precept is a four-door electric hatchback that’s sleek and has an extremely aerodynamic shape, just like other Polestar models.

The vehicle can also be charged to 80% in 30 minutes or so using special charging equipment. The Precept will have three motors—one for each axle—and they'll produce between 201 horsepower and 303 horsepower total. That's more than enough power to get around, even with all those batteries onboard!
No surprise here. In its quest to reclaim market share from Tesla, GM is heavily investing in all-electric vehicles. The automaker has confirmed two all-electric vehicles for 2020 with a rumored Cadillac model to follow in 2021. This vehicle will be similar to the current Chevy Bolts but could feature an advanced autonomous system. After 2021, GM is expected to release an SUV built on the same platform as CTS and CT6, which would position it as a direct competitor to Tesla Model X and future Model Y crossover SUVs.

what platform they plan to use or which automaker they'll partner with, but expect something luxurious. Some reports suggest it could cost $250,000 or more when it goes on sale in 2022.
Already debuting as an all-electric concept car at CES 2018, Audi’s upcoming Audi Aicon is a four-seater with a fully electric powertrain. With four motors, one for each wheel, you won’t find yourself lacking torque or speed.

As noted by Autocar when it debuted, the Aicon features not only digital suspension but also cameras fitted between its body panels to provide information on road surface quality that can be used to adjust both ride height and shock damping settings.
