Electric cars are nowhere

The Frankfurt motor show is big. It’s like if they took Sydney’s international and domestic airports, tripled it in size, took away any form of cohesive internal transport and put lots of cars in it. Even then, I think the Frankfurt show is bigger. Every two years when I attend the show I always vow that next time, I will actually see things...

2015 Tesla Model S 85 Review

My Model S was delivered at the end of May 2015. I'd confirmed my order New Year's day and seemed to have an inordinately long wait for delivery, it's unclear why it took nearly 6 months.

2015 Tesla Model S P85d Review

Just hit 18000kms in a P85D and I've owned this car since Oct 2015. It's flawless - no issues whatsoever and it feels the same as the day I picked it up (new). 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...
