2017 Tesla Model S 75D Review

Now that the hype surrounding Tesla has died down a little and the Tesla Model S has been given a facelift to keep it looking fresh, is it a sensible decision to pick the electric sedan over its German luxury rivals?

Audi RS7 Sportback v Tesla Model S P85D : Comparison Review

Here we have two very different takes on technology and performance. The Audi RS7 Sportback is a high-tech luxury four-door coupe with a stonking big V8 engine, and the Tesla Model S P85D is about the same size and shape, but makes do with batteries and two electric motors for its propulsion. Why compare them? Simple – both are different answers to the same question...

I drive to work at around 220kms per day. Bought it as my older previous car was costing $20k per year for fuel and servicing - whereas this comes with an 8 year unlimited km warranty, no fuel or servicing required...
