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.

Tesla's First Rural Aussie Supercharger Is In Goulburn

The first Tesla Motors Supercharger station in Australia that’s not in the middle of Sydney has been confirmed and approved, and it’s slated for Goulburn in New South Wales’ Southern Tablelands. Part of an entirely free, nationwide, high speed electric vehicle battery charger network, the set of eight Superchargers in Goulburn will come online before June.

Tesla Motors Australia Is On Another Hiring Spree

Feel like switching jobs? Like cars? Like electric cars? Well, you’re in luck. Tesla Motors in Australia is in need of quite a few more staff, as it quickly grows within Australia.

There's A New Tesla Model S, The Dual-Motor 70D

There’s a new Tesla Motors Model S all-electric sedan. It’s the Model S 70D, and it’s a slightly less bonkers version of the all-wheel-drive, super-fast Model S P85D. And we’re getting it in Australia.

Affordable Electric Cars Are Coming Soon, Study Says

For many of us, purchasing an electric vehicle is still a pie in the sky dream. But that might be changing soon, if a new peer-reviewed study is correct that the cost of electric car batteries is falling much more quickly than we assumed.

Electric Vehicles Just Got Cooler

In case you didn’t think electric vehicles were cooler than their petrol-guzzling counterparts, well, think again. They quite literally are, according to science.

Renovo Coupe: As Shiny As Electric Gets

The Renovo Coupe might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s certainly one of the curviest — and shiniest — electric supercars that you are ever likely to lay eyes on. Boasting a 740-volt lithium ion battery that pushes out 500-horse power and a Nvidia Tegra X1 superchip with a teraflop of processing grunt, it’s certainly no slouch in the “oomph” department either. We were lucky to get up close and personal with the latest iteration at Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California. Despite having to constantly wipe drool off our lens, we managed to take a few photos…

Electric Vehicle Makers Need To Agree On Standards

Standards are a key part of technical progress and for the increased use of renewable energy. Solar power provides an obvious example — if a photovoltaic unit is used to put power back into the electricity grid, then the power needs to satisfy the standards for the grid in terms of voltage, cycles-per-second, and so on.
