    Tesla market share of BEVs in NSW

    SA, Vic and NSW proposed EV road user charge

    So maybe it would be best to introduce this tax on EV’s now, as it is politicaly easier than placing on all cars, in preparation for the long term need and compensate with something like removing stamp duty on EV’s?

    OMG - am I dreaming?

    Will stronger AUD lead to price drop

    My unscientific observation is they adjust pricing once a 5c threshold has been maintained ie below 65c for x weeks so price change. I don’t expect the price to change until we are above 70c for a few weeks. Also they tend to change the price once deliveries have been completed from the last...

    Evie EV charging networks

    The technology has existed for a long time (Octopus card in Hong Kong launched in 1997), sad that it has taken so long in so many markets. At least mobile systems should replace it. I actually hope Elon can use Starlink as a backbone for a second attempt at banking (x.com) and this time he can...

    Model Y arriving sooner than expected?

    My understanding at the moment is our model Y will come from Giga Berlin and production is not due to start till 2021. Unless we get ours from China or US I can’t see us getting it till late 2021 at the earliest. This Recent post on Reddit indicates that standard range Y is not due till 2022...

    Tesla battery event Hornsdale

    Disappointing that there is no mention of reducing gas demand rather than only increasing supply,. We need to modernise and move demand from gas to electricity, especially when matched with solar supply. Electricity prices will reduce due to plunging solar costs and battery prices will reduce...
