The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

  The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven The 2022 Rivian R1T is the first mass-produced electric truck to hit the U.S. market, but that’s hardly the most interesting thing about it. Its electric powertrain notwithstanding, the R1T is unlike any pickup we’ve ever driven—part truck, part sport sedan, and 100 percent amazing. It’s been speculated that pickup buyers are too conservative to embrace electrification, but after our first drive in a pre-production Rivian R1T, both on-road and off-, we think this is the electric truck that will turn them into believers.

The emergency vehicle from Hyundai for the Rally World Championship (WRC) 2022 will look "significantly different" as the prototype based on the words of MotorsportChef Andrea Adamo i20, with which the work team of the South Korean manufacturer currently promotes developing for the new Rally1 regulations.

"I believe the only thing we have kept are the rims," ​​says Adamo the English-speaking edition of 'Motorsport.com'. With the trial version of the i20 Rally1 Hyundai in October in Italy simulated a complete rally to test the processes with new hybrid drives. The Automobile World Association Fia had intensively pursued the test.

New Ranger Dropping: Ford Teases Redesigned Truck in Australia

  New Ranger Dropping: Ford Teases Redesigned Truck in Australia A new generation of Ford Ranger is on the horizon and the Blue Oval’s Australian arm is putting out the teasers to prove it. Wait, Australia? What about us Yanks? Well, there’s not a peep coming from Ford’s North American operations regarding this redesigned Ranger at the moment, but if the current midsize truck that Ford sells in the United States is anything to go by, then this new Australian-market model might provide a preview of what's to come our way. Your browser does not support this video This is due to the fact that today's U.S. Ranger is largely based on the model Ford sells in a number of international markets, including Australia.

According to Adamo, this test was an important test under competitive conditions, "but the answers are even more important," says the motorsport boss. When asked how far Hyundai is with the development of the new car, which will debut from 20 to 23 January 2022 at the Rally Monte-Carlo, Adamo answers with the following analogy:

"It's a bit like in the movie Shrek where you are on the way to a far, far away land and the donkey asks again and again: 'Are we already there?' Basically, I'm for my engineers like the donkey. The problem is that we do not know exactly where we have to go. "

A good eight weeks, Hyundai and the other teams still stay in preparation for the WRC season start 2022. On the question of whether Hyundai will be ready until then, Adamo answers: "The problem is that we have no choice, as willing be."

"Even if people think I'm powerful, I do not have the power to call the FIA ​​and ask them to postpone the event for a week because a supplier did not deliver the parts in time," says the Italian. "There are schedules, and you have to respect."
