Australians charged $761 million each year for car batteries

A new study has revealed the impact flat batteries have on Australian consumers, and how prone we are to replacing them instead of recharging. The study, which was undertaken by research firm YouGov and commissioned by accessory company CTEK, found Australian consumers spent $761 million on car batteries and 8 million collective hours waiting for a battery replacement during the last 12 months. It also found Australians are three times more likely to replace a flat battery than recharge it.

2019 Porsche 911 teased

Porsche has issued a new teaser image for its upcoming 2019 911, revealing the car will maintain its familiar silhouette. Surprised? Us neither. Set for reveal at the Los Angeles motor show later this month, the '992' 911 has been spied a multitude of times in various states of undress. Based on those images, we know the car will get slimmer tail-lights with a clear cover, along with a diffuser and exhaust treatment in keeping with the Panamera, Macan and Cayenne.

Tesla Australia to add CCS chargers to support Model 3

Tesla Australia has announced it will upgrade its Supercharger network with Combined Charging System (CCS) plugs, in order to support the upcoming Model 3 sedan. Unlike the Model S and Model X, the Model 3 will come with a CCS port, which combines AC and DC connectors – the S and X are currently produced with only a Type 2 port that doesn't allow them to utilise most public DC fast-chargers without an adapter.
