Tesla just made its giant battery reserve in South Australia even bigger

The world’s biggest lithium-ion battery, Tesla's Hornsdale Power Reserve in South Australia, has received a capacity bump of around 50 per cent, courtesy of a major expansion project that promises to bring even more reliability to the state's grid. Electric carmaker Tesla and its partner Neoen, the French renewable energy provider that owns the reserve, have completed a project deploying more storage capacity at the site, which is located in Hornsdale, north of Jamestown, in South Australia.

Ford Mustang celebrates its birthday today: here’s some cool stuff

In case you haven’t heard the story of how the Ford Mustang was born, here is a quick recap before we get into our list of the best examples of all time. The original Ford Mustang – named after the P-51 World War II fighter plane – was relatively affordable as it was based on the underpinnings of Ford’s sedan at the time. But its daring design and sharp $US2300 starting price saw sales take off as soon as it was unveiled at the New York Auto Show on 17 April 1964.
