2020 Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus review

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...

Tesla Model 3 drives into overturned truck, was Autopilot to blame?

A Tesla Model 3 has been filmed driving directly into an overturned truck on a highway in Taiwan, with reports suggesting the driver was possibly relying on the electric carmaker's Autopilot system.

Tesla Cybertruck won’t be five per cent smaller after all, compact ute could follow

Toyota tops the list, Tesla climbs the ranks in Australia's most trusted car brands

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...

2016 Tesla Model X P90D review

Americans have a real knack of making visitors from the rest of the world look on in awe – truly both the best and worst in life can be found there. It’s easy to look on jealously as a visiting car-loving consumer. So few can match the States’ population and market competition...

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...
