This week in auto news, we bring you updates on the Tesla Cybertruck, insights from our experience with the Prodrive P25 Subaru restomod, and the unveiling of the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse. Let’s dive into this week’s highlights from AutoMotorMart.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, shared that the Cybertruck is now in its final stages of testing and validation across the globe. The electric pickup, according to Musk, measures just under 19 feet in length but boasts a 6-foot truck bed, making it a perfect fit for a standard 20-foot garage.

Meanwhile, the all-electric Cadillac Optiq made an early debut, courtesy of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The compact electric SUV will build on the soon-to-be-released Equinox EV’s design, leveraging GM’s Ultium electric vehicle platform and powertrain solutions.
Our team took the Prodrive P25 Subaru restomod for a few quick laps around England’s renowned Millbrook Proving Ground. At first glance, the P25, which retails for $600,000, appears to be a Subaru clone. However, beneath the economy car façade lies the heart of a supercar.
The Ford F-150 Lightning saw a considerable price reduction this week, up to $9,979, bringing its starting price down to $51,990. Despite the drop, the electric pickup still carries a premium of $10,321 compared to its debut price in 2022.
Lastly, the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse made its debut sporting a robust, mini-Tahoe-like aesthetic. The model lineup now includes a Z71 off-road variant featuring red tow hooks, 18-inch all-terrain tires, and skid plates. Each 2024 Traverse will be equipped with a new 2.5-liter turbo-4 engine and can come with a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system.
