Therefore, at CES this year, automakers revealed a host of concepts intended to presage this battery-powered future. Some of these are from marques familiar to car shoppers and car lovers.

We’ve told you about the delightful BMW iX before. But at CES, the Bavarian brand unveiled enhanced versions of its all-electric SUV. On the roomy side, it showed off a more potent (and expensive) M60 version, with many performance-oriented upgrades. But it also revealed new interior screens: one upfront that can display immersive artistic experiences, and a broad one in the rear that can stream movies at astounding 8K resolution. However, our favorite new iX feature is an electrophoretic skin that allows the car’s exterior to change colors—at least from black to gray to white—or show off cool pixelated patterns, all at the touch of a button.

Given the grave difficulties in solving some of the key technological, societal, and infrastructural issues with self-driving cars, we’ve seen a recent diminution in such concepts. But that didn’t stop the oldest American automaker from showing this futuristic autonomous pod. We dig the dashing teardrop shape and rose gold-rimmed skylight cutouts in the tail, but we’re more compelled by the interior.

The real way we can discern automakers are getting serious about electrification is their commitment to building battery-powered full-size pickup trucks. Though these vehicles are needlessly heavy, and their capabilities are heavily underutilized, Americans can’t get enough of them: They’ve been the best-selling vehicles here for decades.

Hyundai and its subsidiaries have emerged as an automotive design leader in recent years – especially in electrification – and we’re here for it. Now, the Korean manufacturing megalith has turned its attention to other forms of electric transportation.

It makes perfect sense for an entertainment/technology company like Sony to be entering the vehicle market right now. This is not just because our cars have – in addition to providing transportation – become extensions of our ubiquitous tech-focused lifestyles, with seamless integration to our phones, cameras, music and podcast libraries, calendars, and shopping.

You’ve probably never heard of VinFast. It is a Vietnamese automaker that mainly produces gasoline-powered vehicles for the domestic market. But it has aspirations to become a global power. So, it did what many globally aspiring automakers from the developing world have done in the past.
