Tesla opens Supercharging services to rival car brands in Norway, no plans for Australian expansion

In an unprecedented move for Tesla, the electric vehicle specialist will open its Supercharger stalls to all makes of electric vehicles at a Norwegian site in 2022. As first reported by Electrek.com, officials from the northern county of Vestland were informed earlier this week the US-based manufacturer would expand access to its presently-exclusive system in a bid to qualify for regional tax incentives.

A rare and immaculate 1977 Holden Torana A9X sold short of its $1 million target price at auction at the weekend, but it set a new record for the breed. One of just 33 Holden Torana A9X road cars specially-built to be eligible for motor racing – known as a GMP&A model – went under the hammer for $775,000, but the buyer paid in excess of $833,000 once the 7.5 per cent auction fee was included.
