Tesla Expands Access to 30 Supercharger for Non-Tesla Electric Vehicles in Australia

 

By Jeff Gibbs

Tesla, the trailblazing American electric vehicle manufacturer, has significantly broadened the accessibility of its Supercharger network in Australia, allowing electric vehicles from rival manufacturers to recharge at almost half of its charging stations. This expansion represents a significant step in enhancing electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the continent, as Tesla’s pilot program extends its reach to nearly every mainland jurisdiction.

In January 2023, Tesla made a pioneering announcement, designating five of its approximately 50 Supercharger locations in Australia to support all electric cars equipped with a CCS fast-charging socket. This compatibility encompasses nearly every new battery-powered vehicle available for purchase in the Australian market, with the exception of the Nissan Leaf.

Since then, Tesla has further reinforced its commitment to this initiative by adding an additional 25 Supercharger locations to the list, resulting in a total of 30 accessible charging stations out of the 63 located throughout Australia. This expansion now benefits electric vehicle owners across every jurisdiction in mainland Australia, except for Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

Tesla Expands Access to 30 Superchargers for Non-Tesla Electric Vehicles in Australia

Tesla offers two versions of Superchargers in Australia, including the V2, capable of delivering up to 120 kW, and the V3, which can provide an impressive 250 kW charging rate.

For drivers of non-Tesla electric cars, utilising these Superchargers comes at a cost of 79 cents per kilowatt-hour. However, Tesla has introduced a subscription plan, priced at $9.99 per month, that reduces the charging cost to 66 cents per kilowatt-hour for non-Tesla drivers.

Tesla vehicle owners also benefit from reduced charging rates, typically ranging from 58 to 70 cents per kilowatt-hour, depending on the specific location.

To facilitate easy access to this expanded charging network, Tesla provides an online map showcasing the 30 Supercharger locations available to all electric cars, ensuring seamless recharging capabilities for electric vehicle owners across various suburbs and states in Australia.

Casino Showground Bookings Now Available

 

We are excited to announce that the recently revitalised Casino Showground and Racecourse precinct will commence accepting bookings starting from Monday, June 3rd.

With a generous funding injection of $12.8 million from the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund, alongside contributions from various sources including the NSW Showground Stimulus Program, Drought Communities Funding, Crown Lands, and Council, the total investment in this redevelopment has reached $14.4 million.

This newly enhanced facility boasts a range of features including a spacious undercover arena, an outdoor sand arena, turfed areas, covered stables, and a state-of-the-art racehorse stable complex capable of accommodating up to 80 horses. Additionally, new parking areas for cars, trucks, and floats have been added for the convenience of visitors.

Of notable appeal is the newly constructed racehorse exercise area, which includes round yards, a horse walker, and a 50-metre equine pool. These amenities are expected to draw considerable interest from equestrian enthusiasts and event organizers alike. Furthermore, enhancements such as powered event camping areas have expanded the facility’s versatility, allowing for hosting a diverse range of events including country music festivals, car shows, trade exhibitions, and markets.

Despite the official opening ceremony held on April 20th to commemorate the acknowledgment of government funding, certain essential construction tasks remain pending due to unforeseen circumstances. These include the high-voltage power upgrade, completion of the equine training area, and fencing installations crucial for ensuring the safety of all facility users.

Unfortunately, adverse weather conditions in the Northern Rivers region have exacerbated delays, saturating many areas of the facility and rendering them unsuitable for immediate use. However, efforts are underway to expedite the finalisation of these outstanding projects in alignment with the originally tendered project costs.

In tandem with these developments, the Council is set to deliberate on its Draft Revenue Policy for 2024-2025 at its upcoming meeting. This policy will outline the proposed fees for utilising the facility and will undergo a public exhibition period of 28 days following the meeting, during which community feedback and submissions will be welcomed.

We extend our gratitude to all existing stakeholders and potential users for their patience throughout this project’s completion, which has been hampered by unforeseen challenges. We eagerly anticipate opening all elements of this facility to serve the broader community.

For those interested in booking the venue, please visit the Council’s venue hire website.
