The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released a new study of frontal crashes that paint rear-seat passenger as the next place automakers should focus their attention.

While most of the spotlight has been on the Tesla Model 3 and impending Model Y for the past several months, the company hasn't forgotten about the cars that really got the ball rolling. The 2020 Tesla Model S and Model X have received improvements and both range and power.

Whenever Aston Martin releases a new car, you can rest assured that it's going to be a looker.

Krieger said, "...the car will be revealed around September."

The Tesla Model S is currently the highest-rated electric car on range, at a whipping 335 miles. It's little brother, the Model 3, isn't far behind, with it's Long Range version pegged at 310 miles.

What happens when you throw some obstacles in the way, like a 6,000-foot climb up a mountain pass?
