Here's some statistics for you: 86% of Australians live in urban areas. The average Australian drives just over 13,000km per year, or 250km…

See above comments about the Reolink doorbell options - it's also half the price of this deal. The only downside is that there's no battery…

The drivetrain does not servicing - there's literally nothing to service. Tyres will probably wear about 5% faster than the equivalent ICE…

They never had a monopoly, so this is just dumb. EVs from Nissan, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and even Holden were in Australia before Tesla.

I had a jackass tell me to my face the other day that he deliberately cuts off Tesla's in traffic because he hates electric cars.

Imagine using the word "vapourware" in a context that proves that you have no idea what it means. This is a run-out sale on the outgoing…

This deal is limited to a few cars of the old model left in stock in Australia. It's not going to affect resale much, more broadly.

Sure, but it's unlikely to be needed until the rest of the vehicle is also pretty worn out. How many passenger cars make it to 400,000km…

LFP is cheaper, but lower performance and less energy dense. That's why they only fit the LFP to the RWD (single motor) model - it helps…

The price is $64k, which is $8k cheaper than list price (albiet for the outgoing model). That's basically used car pricing for a brand new…

Evidence from earlier models suggest that the battery is good for at least another 100,000km without too much degradation, probably longer.…

I really like the look of the Highland styling changes personally - but I'm less convinced about the removal of the stalks, and the parking…

If it helps, it's pretty rare that need to use public chargers and wait 20+ minutes for a charge. Most people are charging at home 99% of…

Telsa Model S launch is nearly 12 years ago. The Model 3 was first available in 2019, so the very oldest ones on our roads are 5 years old.

Which model of the dash did you get? I've been considering one, at the right price....

That car has done 105,000km, which is more like 7 years of driving for the average user. It's also out of warranty now, which may reduce…

Car rental companies in the US specifically. They went in way too deep and way too fast; their customers had EVs foisted upon them with no…

Resale of early models have dropped because Tesla has lowered the retail price and there are government incentives for new cars. When a…

In general, things like valves don't require maintenance. If they work, you don't touch them. If they don't work, you replace them. It's…

The short answer is yes, I'd be happy to buy a car that hadn't been serviced in 7 years, IF it was a car that was designed to not need…

It's impossible to say, given the vagueness of the hypothetical question. What's the condition of the paint and panels? How about the…

I'm not eligible either, but my solar covers my entire power bill anyway so I'm not deeply concerned.

@The Judge: Electricity networks have constant monitoring at various points, and they know from the approved applications the address at…

The minimum size battery is eligible under this scheme is 6 kWh x 2000 recipients. It's not a lot, but it's not nothing either. I don't…

@Speedz I'm absolutely not a brand snob. The BYD Seal is a lovely car, and I would be happy consider one in the future. It's right at the…

You misunderstand the primary purpose of this limited rebate offer. Aside from good political optics, this is a relatively cheap way to put…

"Comparable tech" is a pretty vague measure. The Atto 3 is a nice vehicle in its own right, but not really a competitor to the Model 3 - it…

*EV insurance costs are shocking* I can't really comment on how much insurance costs for EVs are rising (only paid one year so far) but…

Lots to unpack here, but I can share some of my own experiences after doing a lot of research and talking to a lot of owners before buying…

I have a 27" QHD 100Hz Kogan screen that's been working just fine for 5+ years. It has minimal inputs, a terrible stand and the menu is…
