The Standard Range Plus represents the most affordable entry into the Model 3 range. We think it's the smartest, too.

The car names you've probably been mispronouncing this whole time

Fancy yourself a car enthusiast? While being an enthusiastic car owner and a good driver are both part of your overall street cred, a lot of it comes down to being able to talk the torque. And where many of us can come undone when showing off our automotive prowess is butchering the pronunciation of brand or model names as badly as Kim from Kath & Kim used to pronounce 'chardonnay' (she said 'kar-don-aye', for the record)...

2019 electric vehicle comparison: Jaguar I-Pace v Hyundai Ioniq v Nissan Leaf v Tesla Model S v Renault Zoe

Normally a comparison is a great opportunity for us to compare vehicles that sit within the same size or price category, with a CarAdvice-backed winner declared at the end. Given the relative lack of competition within segments in the electric vehicle market, we wanted to do something a little different with a comparison of a cross-section of the passenger EV market – a group of cars from the cheapest to the most expensive...

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...

Mattel, the maker of Matchbox toy cars, has committed to going carbon neutral by 2030, with everything from the toy’s packaging to the toy car itself made from 99 per cent recycled materials, certified carbon-neutral.

Elon Musk responds to deadly Texas Tesla crash, as Consumer Reports reveals how Autopilot can be tricked

Tesla boss Elon Musk has broken his silence over a deadly Tesla crash in Texas – in which two occupants were killed after it appeared one of them was attempting to operate the vehicle on autopilot and had vacated the driver seat.

2019 Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus review

As a former Telsa owner (2017 Model S75) I had no hesitation ordering a Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR +) when they became available in Australia. I have had the car for over a year and have racked up 23000km, so thought now would be a good time to provide an ownership update. Why a Model 3? I had always wanted a Model 3 and purchased a Model S to tide me over until the Model 3 arrived...

2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance review

I hate to say it, but I am yet another convert. I bought a Model 3 which had been a cancelled order from another customer, so I was driving away in a new car only a week after my deposit. White with White. At first, I thought I had made a mistake, the union between the car and I feeling like an arranged marriage...

2017 Tesla Model X 90d review

Faced with our accountant telling us for two years running that our 20-year old Chauffeur car business with German cars was sending us broke, it forced me into thinking outside the square. A Tesla promised a minimum of ongoing maintenance and rectification costs...

2019 Tesla Model 3 Performance review

I've just taken delivery of my second electric car. The first one was quite a bit smaller, as I recall made by Scalextric. Flooring that car's throttle was guaranteed to catapult the tiny vehicle off its track, to then get airborne and tumble end over end. So much fun! What would now would be seen by many as an early EV "safety glitch", things have since been vastly improved, and blissfully the "fun catapult" bit has not been lost...
