NSW EV charging investment, electric bus trial announced

The New South Wales Government has announced a major election promise today, confirming a not insignificant investment in its electric vehicle fleets and the state's growing EV charging network. If successful in the March 23 election, the NSW Liberal party claims its Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Plan will include a $3 million co-investment in fast charging points on major regional corridors, along with $2 million on chargers in commuter car parks.

World's first Mercedes-AMG dealership opens in Sydney

Mercedes-AMG has aggressively expanded its model line-up in recent years, pushing downmarket with a range of V6-powered '43' models. Now, it's expanding its footprint in a very different way, with a dedicated full-service dealership in Sydney. Rather than rubbing shoulders with four-cylinder A-Classes and diesel vans, the showroom will be dedicated to high-performance cars with a three-pointed star on their nose.
