2019 Hyundai Ioniq EV Premium Within 20 years, if you want to see an internal combustion engine, you’ll probably need to visit a museum, just as they did in the song Big Yellow Taxi/. In the interim, cars driven by big washing machine motors will become commonplace. Poor old Australia is ages behind the rest of the rest of the [...]

2019 Jaguar I-Pace SE EV400 Road Test, Review Sir William Lyons formed Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922, on his 21st birthday. That company became Jaguar Cars Limited, and was known for Sir Bill’s catch cry, “Space, Grace, and Pace”. Since then, Jaguar has been synonymous for luxury and innovation, but things were tough. Over the years, there have been many, [...]

In the time since we last drove BMW’s i8 (read the review here), the coupe has gone on the be the world’s highest selling plug-in hybrid sports car. We rated it then, and we rate it now. It’s a proper supercar, and last week it was joined by its open-top sister at the Australian launch. In a quiet back [...]

Lexus has stretched its enormously successful Lexus RX SUV to accommodate third-row seats and a seven-seat capacity in the just arrived Lexus RX L. Launched this week, the Lexus offering joins a fairly short list of seven-seat SUVs on offer from the premium manufacturers, discounting off course the larger offerings such as the LandCruiser-based Lexus LX, BMW X5, Land [...]

By |2019-06-30T15:22:03+10:00February 12th, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, EV Reviews, Gay cars fit for a queen?, Toyota Reviews|0 Comments

Should I buy a Toyota Prius? That's a question motorists have been asking for nearly 20 years. Despite all the good attributes of Toyota's original hybrid offering, as with its petrol/electric brethren from Toyota and other brands, how the fuel prices of the day are travelling correspond directly with how popular the car is. For those brands marketing a car [...]

2017 Tesla Model S P100D menu and interior

By |2019-06-30T14:39:46+10:00July 16th, 2017|AWD, Car Reviews by Brand, EV Reviews, Fastback, Helpful Hints, Tesla Reviews, Videos|0 Comments

Every now and then, something special comes across my desk. When I received a request to take a Tesla, the first thing to do was familiarize myself with the complex interior. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The interior was simplified to the point of austerity. There are almost no buttons or levers visible to clutter the beautiful cabin. [...]

2017 Tesla Model S P100D Review

The Model S has “Ludicrous” Mode. It gets you to 100kph in around 2.7 seconds. While you let that sink in, it will come as no surprise that power and torque figures are also hard to believe. Up to 581kW, and 1,250Nm makes a mockery of the posh Euro-Barges. Suffice to say you’re going to need many more shekels [...]

  Since we last drove BMW’s diminutive i3 with Range Extender (read it here), i3 has been improved in range and consumption with the 94Ah (with or without range extender) recently brought to Australia. We liked i3 a lot. It’s either cute or silly depending on your point of view. My 10-year-old nephew loves it because it has blue lights [...]
