Tritium charging network se qland to Byron Bay

From noosa to Byron Bay,

Noosa to Byron Bay EV charging network

Wonder how much to charge.. it says hydrids as well

"Brisbane, Australia-based Tritium, developer of the Veefil Electric Vehicle (EV) Fast Charger, has launched a Fast Cities Network initiative to establish Australia’s largest fast-charging network in Australia and the first in Eastern Australia. Located within the SE Queensland region, the proposed 430 km (267-mile) network will create an electric super highway, showcasing intra-city and intercity travel for EVs in Brisbane and the Gold Coast area.

The Fast Cities Network will connect Brisbane to Noosa, Toowoomba and Byron Bay, making charging quick, easy and convenient for drivers of pure electric and hybrid vehicles. Twelve Veefil fast charge points will be strategically located along major transport corridors, meeting around 95% of the travel needs of people living in South East Queensland"

That coupled with the Tesla Network roll-out which has already started in Sydney, shows things are starting to happen for ev charge points between Melbourne and Noosa! what do you think?

I guess I could put the Leaf on the back of a flat bed truck Sydney to Byron then drive it North from there?

I hope I'm wrong, but I think they are waiting for "businesses and organizations to get behind the initiative". Someone has to pay.

Hi to Plan B

"I guess I could put the Leaf on the back of a flat bed truck Sydney to Byron then drive it North from there? " ....

...well you could I guess.. whatever floats your leaf Image

but as you posted before, there may be another option to eventuate ......

"Interesting times. The guy who chaperoned my Model S test drive reckons Tesla are going to unroll their super charger network on the east coast next year, free to Tesla owners but supposedly available for a fee (& an adapter presumably) to Leafies etc." end quote..

lets see what eventuates in 2015.. something positive just might happen

heres hoping!

well not sure how advanced Tritium is in their plan for se Queensland, but for Tesla, here is a press release via Drive.com.au

Tesla East Coast Ev charging roadmap 2016

in part , its says that it has not finalised charge point locations yet, but are looking at approx . 200 km distances between. So from Sydney, you would get approx Newcastle etc. They have already specified Goulburn in the South (200 kms Sydney to Goulburn) Albury (probably with a location in between, and I wouldnt mind betting on Canberra as well )

Perhaps Tritium, or another chargepoint ev company might fill in the gaps, for those that can only do 100 kms in an BEV?

Not happening unless government or private investors stump up the folding. Tritium are too busy with EU market at the moment...
