Tesla electric cars now available with V8 exhaust sound

Did you crave the performance of a Tesla electric car but miss the sound of a rumbling V8? A UK exhaust manufacturer may have the answer: fake external noise. The Milltek exhaust company has invented a muffler that has a built-in speaker to emit a fake but realistic V8 noise – or one of a number of high performance sounds that can be selected via a smartphone app. The noise gets louder as the otherwise silent electric car in driven faster or accelerates harder.

10 electric utes on the horizon

The electrification revolution has made its way through hatchbacks to sedans and SUVs and now it has its sights set firmly on a new frontier: utes. As with most automotive industry showdowns, it was Tesla that kicked off this sparring match with its not-so-bulletproof Cybertruck, releasing a video showing the all-wheel-drive, all-electric pickup tugging a Ford F-150 up a hill.

Tesla recalls Model X for power steering failure, Australia not included

Tesla has announced it will voluntarily recall 15,000 Model X SUVs over the risk its power steering components will fail. UPDATE (18/02/20): The recall has expanded to include 3183 Model Xs in China, as reported by Reuters. CarAdvice understands no Australian vehicles are included in the recall. The campaign includes vehicles built before mid-October 2016 and is not attributable to Australian models, as local Model X deliveries only began later in 2016.
