England Is Exploring The Possibility Of Electric Car Charging Lanes

One of the biggest concerns with electric vehicles is whether they will be able to hold enough juice to get you from A to B. But what if we didn’t have to worry, because we could charge our cars on the highway? England will soon be pilot-testing tech that could lead to EV charging lanes.


Tesla's Robotic Charger Is A Little Bit Sexy

Tesla Motors has a prototype charger for its all-electric Model S that senses a nearby car and guides its high-voltage connector to the car’s rear-mounted port, all without any human interaction. And it looks… sensual.


How Much Does It Cost To Charge A Tesla Model S?

Surely owning an all-electric Tesla Model S is cheaper than powering your car on expensive liquefied dinosaurs, right? Just how much will it cost you to charge a Tesla in your garage every night?


Tesla's Model S Update: Faster, Cheaper, Longer Range

Tesla’s Model S all-electric sports sedan is a constantly evolving vehicle, with new features and upgrades constantly added throughout the three years of its existence. But today, there’s a big update that entirely changes the car that you can buy. Three new options come in the form of longer range, a lower starting price, and an even faster rate of acceleration.


Electric Cars Are Ever So Slightly Lighter With Dead Batteries

Drive your car until the tank’s empty, and it will probably be 45kg lighter (minus the 6 extra Red Bulls consumed). But drive an electric car until it’s out of juice, and on a much smaller scale, it will also have shed weight.


An Electric Highway Will Soon Connect Perth And South-West WA

If you own an electric car and live in Western Australia, travelling from town to town just got a lot easier. Teslas, Nissan’s Leaf and other electric vehicles will be able to use the RAC’s new Electric Highway network, free, until the end of the year.


Nissan's Next-Gen Leaf Has 550km Of All-Electric Range

Nissan’s Leaf city car is a great, affordable alternative to the Tesla Motors Model S and other high-end electric cars. It doesn’t have a huge range in its current iteration, though, but that’s about to change — there’s a range-boosting update on the way, and the next Leaf could have over five hundred kilometres of all-electric power.


The Infrastructure Australia Needs To Make Electric Cars Viable

Tesla may have ambitious plans for battery technology for the home but it is also looking to upgrade its electric vehicle batteries, which will allow them to travel twice the distance they currently do. So what will be the implications for Australia?


BMW Wants To Put a Vehicle Charging Station In Every Street Light

For electric vehicles to truly supplant their gas-guzzling predecessors, there needs to be as many charging stations on the roads as there are gas stations — if not more. So BMW proposes upgrading the street lights that already line roads everywhere with charging capabilities and energy-efficient lighting.


Fiat Recalls Its 500e Electric Car Over A Software Bug

Fiat’s all-electric 500e city car isn’t sold in Australia, which is a pity. It’s only sold in California, but it’s actually pretty popular over there — with over 6000 sold in the last couple of years. Unfortunately, the lion’s share of those Fiat 500es will have to visit the dealer, to fix a software bug affecting the car’s battery. Whoops.
