Solar-powered Tesla Model 3 takes 10 days to recharge

A YouTube star has attempted to recharge a Tesla Model 3 electric car using only the power of the sun. The channel ItsYeBoi rigged up a trailer and fitted it with eight solar panels. Although the trailer was not properly attached to the Tesla Model 3 – the neck appeared to be resting on top of a spare tyre in the boot, as the car was driven slowly around a parking lot – the experiment aimed to find out if solar power could provide an endless source of energy to an electric car.

Tesla Roadster’s rocket propulsion explained

A new video by a popular automotive YouTube channel has gone to lengths to work out how Tesla’s proposed rocket propulsion system may work on its upcoming Roadster electric sports car. The video, posted by channel Engineering Explained, discusses how Tesla’s ‘SpaceX’ option – which sees the Roadster’s rear seats removed in favour of a large tank with highly-pressurised air inside, able to vent pressure to 10 jets located on the car’s exterior – might affect performance figures.

Land Rover Defender-inspired Ineos Grenadier spied testing

Do not adjust your eyes, this is not an old Land Rover Defender dressed in a disguise. The box-shaped heavy duty four-wheel-drive in these spy photos is called the Ineos Grenadier – and it's coming to Australia. The name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but hardcore four-wheel-drive enthusiasts may want to take note.
