Tesla Model Y
In August 2013, Tesla trademarked the name “Model Y”. In October 2015, Musk described a future “Model Y”. In August 2017, Tesla announced that the Model Y would use the Model 3 platform.
In February 2018, Tesla announced that they would unveil Model Y production plans within the next 3–6 months and posted open positions for Model Y production and design. In May 2018, Musk said that the Model Y will be built on a platform that shares many components with the Model 3, and that the Model Y will be in production at the earliest in early 2020. In July 2018, Musk rescheduled the Model Y unveiling to be March 2019. In March 2019, Musk tweeted, “Model Y unveil event on March 14 at LA Design Studio” also adding that “the Model Y would be 10% bigger than the Model 3 so would cost 10% more”.
The Model Y unveiling occurred on March 14, 2019. The car will have up to three rows of seats (up to 7 people), 66 cu ft (2 m3) of cargo space with the second and third rows folded, and will have a range of up to 300 miles (480 km).

Tesla Semi – the Tesla Semi Truck
A semi-truck design by Tesla
The Tesla Semi is an all-electric Class 8 semi-trailer truck first mentioned in the 2016 Tesla Master plan.
The vehicle’s official announcement was at a November 16, 2017 press conference where two prototypes were shown. Musk confirmed that two variants would be available: one with 300 miles (480 km) and one with 500 miles (800 km) of range and that the 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time would be 5 seconds versus 15 seconds for a similar truck with a diesel engine. The Semi will be powered by four electric motors of the type used in the Tesla Model 3 and will include an extensive set of hardware sensors to enable it to stay in its own lane, a safe distance away from other vehicles, and later, when software and regulatory conditions allow, provide self-driving operation on highways. Musk also announced that the company would be involved in installing a solar-powered global network of the Tesla Megacharger devices to make the Semi more attractive to potential long-haul customers. A 30-minute charge would provide 400 miles (640 km) of range.

Charging your Tesla in Perth
So as mentioned above in 2020, Perth will be receiving its first Tesla Supercharging station but for now, you can stay charged anywhere you go, with access to ourTesla’s global charging network.
Currently, there are a few options to charging your Tesla in Perth –
For charging your Tesla electric vehicle at home, you might want to consider having an Tesla EV charging point installed. You can usually plug most compatible EVs into any standard electrical outlet. The charging point would need to be set up by a licensed contractor to meet Australian standards.
The time it will take to charge depends on the model of Tesla EV you choose and the type of charger you use (standard socket/EV charger)– but generally you could expect that your electric car would be fully charged overnight.
If your EV is part of a fleet of work vehicles, your workplace could have a dedicated Tesla charging station already. You could also charge at an available electrical outlet or at a nearby charging station.
What is Tesla Supercharging?
Tesla Superchargers are charging stations that have popped up all over the globe in the past 10 years. It’s the electric car equivalent of a gas station. While users can charge their car at home with wall-mounted chargers, Superchargers can recharge a near-dead 85kWh battery in about 70 minutes or get it to 50 per cent in 20 minutes.
Have you heard?
Western Australia will be getting a massive battery storage project, following on from the successful Hornsdale project in South Australia. Western Australia Premier Mark McGown has revealed that the state needs more storage capacity to support the dramatic growth in renewable energy production.
