Performance Drive (Australia) reviews the Tesla Model S P100D

More opinions here

We’re currently testing the P100D beast to see what it’s all about. And on first impressions, it is definitely quick. Like, hold-on-for-your-life quick. Seriously gut-wrenching. If you find it difficult to fully wake up in the morning, floor the throttle in this and you’ll be right awake, quick smart.

Audi promoting their shift to Formula E

Audi pulled out of their very successful endurance racing program last year, which saw them dominate at Le Mans using hybrid-diesel power. Instead, they are moving to Formula E.

The move is bold – but this is where they see the future of production vehicles, so to them it makes sense to move their R&D spend and promotional efforts that come from being involved in motorsport into Formula E.

LEVIAMP ceiling mounted EV charger

Featured in a recent episode of Fully Charged (a must subscribe for any EV fan) was the LEVIAMP from EasyCharge.

This German company has come up with a clever solution for car parks to provide easy to install EV charging in locations that don’t have a wall to install a conventional destination charger on.

Chuck it on a ceiling and there’s a rotatable arm that drops down to plug into! It can be shared across multiple spots too – up to 4 parking spots for 1 charger. The LEVIAMP also doubles as a light source with LEDs. Perfect for brightening up dingy car parks. If you’d like more details on the LEVIAMP, view this PDF brochure.
