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.

2020 Tesla Model 3 price rises by up to $6000

Tesla's most affordable electric car in Australia, the Model 3 sedan, has had its second price rise since going on sale less than a year ago. The Tesla Model 3 range now starts at $73,900 plus on road-costs for the base model Standard Range Plus. That's an increase of $6000 compared to the late 2019 price of $67,900 plus on-road costs, and $7900 more than Tesla Model 3's initial launch price in mid 2019 of $66,000 plus on-road costs.

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.

NSW Net Zero Plan: Targeted electric car incentive strategy revealed

The New South Wales government has announced a new plan to fast-track electric car uptake by supporting the rollout of fast-charging infrastructure, incentivising fleet purchases of electric cars and ensuring all new buildings are electric vehicle-ready. The new measures, which were unveiled on March 14, 2020, as part of the first stage in the Berejiklian government's 10-year Net Zero Plan, will contribute to the state's ultimate goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.
