In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Jaynie Seal) we covered the delivery of the first Tesla semitrailer in the United States. Australian truckies are set for a much longer wait to get behind the wheel of Elon Musk’s latest electric vehicle. At the moment the Tesla Semi might be too wide according to Australian regulations and although its range is 800 kms (impressive) – it won’t make Brisbane to Sydney on a single charge – YET.
But this is a game-changer vehicle. Even under full load it drives like a car. This could encourage more truckies into work. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kph in 20 seconds (full load), single seat but you can stand up in the cabin, powered by three electric motors, safer downhill due to regenerative braking and recharge to 70 per cent in 30 minute using “mega chargers”.
Musk said the long waited Cyber Truck will use these chargers so this is huge for fast EV charging. It’s important to note there is an Aussie-made solution; JANUS ELECTRIC. They have swappable batteries and for now is the best electric solution in Australia.
BOOST MOBILE TRADE-IN APP MAKES CASH FOR PHONES EASY
Boost Mobile has just released a Trade-in app that automatically assesses your phone and gives you a quote. The app runs a series of tests on your smartphone. At the end you get a report and quote.

All happens in less than a week,
In a recent survey – 78% of Australians revealed they have at least one unused smartphone in their home, with 74% open to trading in or recycling their old smartphones. Lack of perceived value (52%), convenience (21%) and private data concerns (25%) were the main reasons stopping some from having their smartphones re-used or recycled.
