Our second long-term update sees us venture to the country in the Tesla Model S P90D. But, does range anxiety set in?

2017 Tesla Model S 75D Review

Now that the hype surrounding Tesla has died down a little and the Tesla Model S has been given a facelift to keep it looking fresh, is it a sensible decision to pick the electric sedan over its German luxury rivals? That question is hard to answer, because it requires a very personal perspective to come to a decision...

Tesla Model S road trip – Sydney to Melbourne

The Tesla Supercharger network is designed to give owners a free charging option while they’re on their way from one place to another. And with a full charge on board, the Model S is capable of more than 500km of electric driving.

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 Australia to add CCS chargers to support Model 3

Tesla Australia has announced it will upgrade its Supercharger network with Combined Charging System (CCS) plugs, in order to support the upcoming Model 3 sedan. Unlike the Model S and Model X, the Model 3 will come with a CCS port, which combines AC and DC connectors – the S and X are currently produced with only a Type 2 port that doesn't allow them to utilise most public DC fast-chargers without an adapter...

McLaren 720S vs Tesla Model S P100D drag race - video

The Tesla Model S is very, very quick in a straight line. The McLaren 720S is also very, very quick in a straight line, albeit through different means to the Tesla.

Tesla Model S, X to gain Model 3-inspired interior - report

Although Tesla is spending most of its time and energy ramping up production of the Model 3, as well as making itself profitable, its flagship models seem likely to get new, probably controversial, interiors.

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...

2015 Tesla Model S 85 Review

My Model S was delivered at the end of May 2015. I'd confirmed my order New Year's day and seemed to have an inordinately long wait for delivery, it's unclear why it took nearly 6 months. This was the only part of what was the first pleasant car buying experience I've had, no car salesmen, only helpful staff...
