Charge Station locations

I think due to the rate of new chargers appearing, it would be best not to re-invent the wheel. Plugshare is the best site out there, there is also Openchargemap but I don't believe it is as thorough.

Does anyone know how much these cost - ballpark figure?

Of course not for me :) But for advising nearby businesses on the approximate costs.

Telstra 2G shutdown

I'm interested to hear what they say as well. When this happened in the US, Nissan supplied dealers with 3G hardware to be installed in place the 2G one. I'd have no problem with paying parts and labour for this to be done. Given the recent change from Carwings to NissanConnect you would think they ...

Model 3 reservations available 31 March

Thanks for the calculations there photomac.

There's no mention of GST in your pricing?

I hope that Tesla don't just do a straight conversion and look at how affordable the "affordable car" really will be for the average Australian!

Second hand from WA. Very happy indeed

My employer has just purchased a couple of Leafs so I imagine I will be getting more familiar with the car in the near future!

I wonder if they mean crowd funding in the traditional sense, or large scale crowd funding at the corporate level (ie. RACT, TasNetworks, Hydro, local governments, State Gov, Nissan dealers, Mitsubishi dealers, land owners) Let's assume that the Hobart-Launceston-Burnie section is $300,000 (made up ...

Great write-up carnut1100!

It would be interesting to see a cost estimate for the Hobart-Launceston-Burnie route for starters.

It's a bit peculiar isn't it. According to Matt Brogan on twitter, their accommodation didn't have any charging facilities, but "RACT were able to help out with a 240V connection". So they didn't leave it charging at 240V overnight? And apparently they tried charging at MONA (tweets seemed to imply ...
