2017 Tesla Model X P100D review

The Tesla Model X P100d is the flagship in the pioneer brand's SUV model range. But for around $300,000 it would want to be good. So how does it stack up in day-to-day running?

2017 Tesla Model X 75D review

At a little over $180,000, you'd expect the Tesla Model X 75D to be near perfect. But, as Paul Maric discovers, that's far from the case...

With the first deliveries of the 2017 Tesla Model X due to start at the end of 2016, we decided to head to Tesla and have a quick look at the first car to land in Australia. Pricing starts from $111,900 (plus on-road costs) for the entry-level Model X 60D, which promises over 350 kilometres of driving range, a top speed of 210km/h, all-wheel drive, and a 0-100km/h time of just 6...

2016 Tesla Model S P90D v BMW 730d Comparison

These are two cars that barely need an introduction. One is a long-time luxury vehicle from a respected German brand, while the other is a lightning-fast newcomer from an American brand with a focus on green credentials. We’re talking, of course, about the BMW 7 Series and the Tesla Model S...

Audi RS7 Sportback v Tesla Model S P85D : Comparison Review

Here we have two very different takes on technology and performance. The Audi RS7 Sportback is a high-tech luxury four-door coupe with a stonking big V8 engine, and the Tesla Model S P85D is about the same size and shape, but makes do with batteries and two electric motors for its propulsion. Why compare them? Simple – both are different answers to the same question...

Supercheap Auto Racing's V8 Supercar racer takes on the world's fastest four-door production car in a drag race of historic proportions.  In this gig, we motoring journos are often driven to pitch story ideas that we know will never get off the ground. It's a built-in compulsion...

Tesla drops Model 3 Mid Range battery

Tesla has continued playing musical chairs with its range, dropping the mid-range Model 3 from the line-up after just five months on sale. The option has been removed from Tesla's online configurator in markets where the new entry-level model is available, leaving the Standard Range, Long Range and dual-motor Performance for North American and Mexican buyers...

Tesla Model Y unveiled, global launch in late 2020

Tesla has given the world its first look at its fifth model line, the Model Y mid-size SUV, which founder Elon Musk believes will be as popular as the Model X and Model 3 combined when it hits the market in September/October 2020...

Tesla Model Y: 'Coupe' crossover teased one last time

With hours to go until the Tesla Model Y is given its formal debut, the electric car maker has teased its second crossover on Twitter. The video posted on the social media network shows the Model Y under a car cover, revealing the car's silhouette. Just like the bigger Model X, the new crossover will have a steeply raked rear, meaning it shares more in common with a BMW X4 than a Toyota Kluger...

Tesla changes tack: More stores to remain open, prices rise to compensate

Just two weeks after Tesla announced it would close most of its stores and move to an online sales model, the electric car maker has reversed course. To soften the blow of the initial announcement, the company used projected savings to reduce prices across its range by around six per cent, while some models in Australia had prices slashed by around $80,000...

2015 Tesla Model S P85d review: 145,000km on the clock

There has been plenty written about new Tesla vehicles, but this review leans towards how this particular car performed and held up after a bit of real world use focusing on energy consumption, tyres, reliability and more. This is a car that does more than just cruise up and down a flat freeway – it's been to most parts of WA and across the Nullarbor, it's handled gravel roads, corrugations, plus all the heat and dust expected in those areas...

2017 Tesla Model S 75 review

Tesla – the love them or hate them car company. I sit in neither camp, but I have been fascinated by their cars since they first entered the market. In 2017, I placed a reservation for a Model 3, but after a while became impatient that the expected delivery date in Australia kept slipping to the right...

2016 Tesla Model S P90D review

Full disclosure: I don't own this car. I wish I did, but short of selling my kidney on Gumtree it's just not going to happen. I did get to drive one, though, and it inspired me to pen my thoughts. Here they are. I’m hurtling down the highway of the future. A car with an internal combustion engine, a relic of the past, suddenly cuts in front of me...

2018 Tesla Model X 100d review

"How far can you go in this thing?" Over the last 4 months and 6,000km of ownership, this by far has been the most common question that I've been asked. The answer I give is: "I don't have range anxiety, I have infrastructure anxiety". By treating the car like a phone and recharging it every night, my wife leaves for her morning commute with a full battery...
