Here’s a list of full electric and hybrid vehicles currently available – or we think or know are incoming to – the Australian market.
We thought we’d have a quick look at the Jaguar I-Pace S and the Model X 75D, their starting prices and specs to see what you’re getting for your money – whether the Jag really is that much cheaper.
Way back in 2016 I put down a reservation order for a Tesla Model 3. Ever since I’ve wanted to check one out in person and I finally got the chance a few weeks ago. The New York Tesla store currently has a demo Model 3 in it and on a visit I headed over one morning to take photos, size it up and just generally see the car in person and push every button.
The i3 was given a mid-life refresh late last year, and deliveries to Australia are just kicking in. This morning I was invited to kick the tyres of a literally fresh off the boat i3s.
In the first of our ‘ownership stories’, Scott tells us about his experiences moving to an electric vehicle with a Tesla Model X 75D: “I’d be perfectly happy driving this car for a very long time.”
The addition of Tesla’s used and demonstrator vehicle inventory to their own website is a big plus for potential buyers trying to keep track of what’s available any given point in time.
The 7 seater configuration of the Model X has traditionally had fixed seats in the middle row – but Tesla have now ditched the fixed middle row in favour of a much more practical folding option, with it available to new orders in Australia now.
