Tesla Model 3 to get air suspension option – report

If you want to buy a new Tesla Model S or Model X in Australia, you’re only able to specify one with adaptive air suspension. Model 3 buyers, however, don’t have that option… yet. Electrek reports it should be coming very soon, a leaked parts catalogue appearing to confirm its imminent introduction to the Model 3 line. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, however, has contacted Electrek to refute the pending introduction of the feature.

2022 Fisker Ocean revealed further, US pricing announced

Fisker has already touted its innovative, flexible leases for the upcoming Ocean SUV, but now it's revealed how much it'll cost to buy one outright.

That price includes the U.S. government’s $7500 (A$10,817) tax credit for battery-electric vehicles.

Tesla sued for wrongful death, door handles blamed

A wrongful death suit alleges the driver of a Tesla Model S died because emergency responders were unable to open his Tesla’s flush door handles. According to US industry journal Automotive News and news agency Bloomberg, Omar Awan, a 48-year-old anaesthesiologist, died of smoke inhalation when a fire broke out in his 2016 Tesla Model S, after he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree. The crash occurred in February of this year in Davie, Florida.
