Tesla just unveiled their affordable electric SUV, the Model Y. The current product lineup completes the S3XY + R acronym, which seems to be a priority. Elon hits peak goofiness in this one. But we love him.

In this recent episode of UK show Fully Charged, they drove a Tesla Model X SUV from Sydney to Brisbane. Apparently most of the fully electric vehicles in Australia are Teslas.

finding myself more and more interested in EV. hard to go past the performance numbers on their own, let alone all the other things that they are coming up with.

Looks great. I hope they do well with them.
It's entirely likely next car we buy will be an EV. There's more reasons for, than against.

haha, i love it. Nice.


I own a Hybrid. I love it. Driving a car with only and ICE now feels strange and like i'm getting into something from the 1950s. Whilst I don't think teslas are the answer for fleets and the masses, i do think the blueprint and the inroads they are making pave the way for the future.

In 20 years time Teslas won't be the premier EV, but a quaint and noble beginnings of the EV revolution (evolution?).

PHEV is my next step - i'm keenly watching the Hyundai ioniq, but it's a bit to prius-y for me. I like my big sedans.

Still not a great range of EVs in Australia. The Nissan Leaf still isn't available and no ETA, though it's available for preorder ($55k). The Hyundai ioniq ($50k) is out I think? VW e-golf not available. BMW i3/i8 but too expensive ($73k / $300k). Any others?

even $50k is way more than I want to spend on a car but I think I'll do it once I get a permanent residence.

you could always get a mitsu minicab miev trog
they're fully electric and only about $15k

But seriously the Ioniq EV is by far and away the best value for money practical EV on the market at present. The new leaf looks to challenge that however.

What I want to know, is what's the big attraction in an EV over a PHEV? Them outlander PHEVs look pretty good...

I know a fella who got an outlander phev on launch day and I think he said one year he only went to a servo 3 times?
