Electric car charges through Portland
DESPITE making minimal noise, Richard McNeall was turning heads as he drove through Portland with his Tesla Model S.
The Sydney-based businessman and his son Danny, 15, pulled into Portland on Tuesday as part of his ambitious attempt to be the first person to circumnavigate Australia in an electric car.
Starting in Melbourne in June, Mr McNeall drove through Sydney, Cairns, Broome, Perth and Adelaide, in what he has called the ‘Anticlockwise Adventurers’.
“I’ve given myself about eight weeks to do the round trip,” McNeall said on Tuesday.
