Ford’s sixth-generation Mustang has been revealed, just a few months out from the iconic pony car’s 50th anniversary.

There's a three-way battle underway, with each party vying for control of your dashboard. The first contenders are companies like Garmin and TomTom -- device-makers that built their reputations on simple, effective, portable tools for navigation.

"A trend, not a fad" is how American supercar builder Saleen has described electric cars--and why it intends to build its own in the next few years. That's an impressive commitment from a company best known for gas-guzzling supercars like the Saleen S7 and highly-modified versions of the Ford Mustang--and says the new car will be "revolutionary in its aesthetics and mechanics".
Save for a few electric vehicles on the fringes of the market--the Tesla Model S, for example, or the tiny Smart Electric Drive--most subcompact and compact electric cars currently offer a range of 80-100 miles. For many people, that's perfectly fine. But it wouldn't hurt to have more, right?
