Audi e-tron recalled in the US for fire risk

Audi and Jaguar are facing issues with the e-tron and I-Pace overseas, with the German marque issuing a recall over a potential fire risk, while the British brand is investigating a report of a fire in Europe. In the US, Audi has issued a safety recall for the e-tron quattro over concerns water can get into the charging port.

Tesla adds factory Model 3 tow hitch option in Europe

Tesla has launched a tow hitch add-on for its Model 3 in Europe, allowing owners to haul 910kg with their all-electric sedans. The feature can't be retrofitted to the car, meaning only new Model 3 owners will be able to get their electric vehicles set to tow by the factory. There are, of course, aftermarket options in the USA already.

2019 Tesla Model S, Model X get a range boost

Tesla has used new electric motors to extend the range of its Model S and Model X Long Range variants, which can now cover 595km and 523km on the EPA test cycle respectively. That's up from 540km in the Model S. It's a handy upgrade, especially when you consider the 100kWh battery still holds the same amount of energy. According to the company, the extra range comes from better cooling, lubrication and bearings, along with better gear designs.
