We kick things off this week with the best look yet at the new blue Tesla Model 3 release candidate. A Tesla Model S prototype with new sensors is spotted in California. And Elon Musk confirms a Tesla Semi all-electric truck will be unveiled in September.

Nissan LEAF next-gen prototype is spotted as the company heavily discounts the current LEAF with special deals ahead of the new vehicle. GM says it now offers Chevy Bolt EV lease ‘nationwide’ for $329. And Faraday Future, Honda, and VW tease new vehicles as Edmunds predicts an electric car sales crash due to the end of the federal tax credit.
